ANTR-2105 Social Organization
This course provides an overall panorama of anthropological work dedicated to the study of the organization of human social life. It analyzes the theoretical and methodological tools that have served to develop them. It reflects on everything from the time the field of study began in the nineteenth century to the recognition of the diverse forms of social organization in existence. It will thus cover notions such as family, marriage, blood relationships, race, class, caste, and gender, demonstrating their importance within the history of anthropology and their relevance to an understanding of the social world. Simultaneously, we will explore the relationships that the different forms of social organization have with aspects such as spatial organization, productive practices, political organization, cultural change, and ideological systems.
