ANTR-3103 Contemporaneous Anthropological Theories
Anthropology is a discipline that has traditionally been dedicated to studying culture, it is perhaps the most influenced, which in turn has influenced theories on contemporaneous society. Since it is meant to understand the meaning of cultural changes, it plays a leading role in new theoretic tendencies. On another note, by radically questioning its relationship with the "other" the discipline has found itself in the obligation of viewing itself in a critical manner. The course provides knowledge of the key tendencies in analyzing society today, from perspectives that not only attempt to understanding the meaning of cultural transformations, but also aim at inquiring the process of knowledge itself in order to propose new research alternatives.
