Fall. Next offered 2016-2017. 4 credits.

V. Santiago-Irizarry.

The anthropological inquiry into one’s own culture is never a neutral exercise. This course will explore issues in the cultural construction of the United States as a “pluralistic” society. We will look at the ideological context for the production of a cultural profile predicted upon ideas that are intrinsic to American images of identity such as individualism, freedom, and equality and the way these are applied in practice. The course readings will include historic documents and accounts, popular writing, and recent ethnographies on the United States.
