Spring. Next offered 2016-2017. 4 credits.

J. Fajans.

From the streets of Rio to the shores of the Amazon, anthropology studies the lives, communities, beliefs, practices, and politics of the diverse region known as Brazil. This course will look at issues of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, ritual, environment, development, and human rights across Brazil. We will examine rural and urban cultures, discuss African and European Influences, and explore the relations between indigenous and national cultures. In this context, we will look at the roles that religion, food, dress, soccer, samba, and carnival all play in producing this vibrant culture.
