Focusing on contemporary issues (such as relatedness, identity, modernity and embodiment) that have been encountered through the course of the Anthropology and Social Theory major, this capstone subject examines in depth the relationship between substantive research, including ethnography, and social and cultural theory. Its foci are simultaneously theoretical and practical. It aims to provide students with experience in the application and development of theory.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject students should:
- apply critical analytical skills to explore how comparative perspectives and a tradition of ethnographic enquiry can inform developments in theory, and conversely, how theories inform the research process;
- examine in detail the interplay between historical and contemporary evidence and theory in relation to key topics in social and cultural anthropology;
- demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively in a variety of written and oral formats;
- demonstrate the ability to work collaboratively with peers.
