ANTHR 3426 - [Economic Anthropology]

Spring. Next offered 2017-2018. 4 credits.

H. Miyazaki.

Economic anthropology is the study of the organization of production, distribution, and associated values in radically different primitive and peasant societies. The course introduces the major competing stances – formalist (neo-classical), substantivist, and Marxist – that have developed frameworks for analysis of exotic economic systems. Other topics include the integration of local communities with larger economic systems, the articulation of capitalist and non-capitalist modes of production, and a critique of theories of value from an anthropological perspective.
