ADVOCATE AND ENGAGE FOR CHANGE: APPLYING ANTHROPOLOGY
Course Director: Prof. K. Schmid - firstname.lastname@example.org
Anthropologists engaged with the world as advocates, activists, consultants, and most often in collaboration with others. This course looks at the development of a publicly engaged anthropology that combines academic and applied anthropology in order to illuminate the larger social issues and problems of our times, encourage broad public conversations about them, and ultimately, affect social change. The course is focused on bringing to light the challenges and strategies of those trained in anthropology as they adapt anthropology’s methods and insights to local and global problems of inequality, injustice, and human suffering. Students learn and practice different methods of engagement and communication.
