ANTHR 3428 - Conflict, Dispute Resolution, and Law in Cultural Context

Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

V. Santiago-Irizarry.

Rule-making and dispute resolution are integral aspects of social reality in any culture. The ways in which conflict is treated and interpreted – to be then deflected or resolved – articulate with other cultural domains such as religion, politics, and economics as part of the material and symbolic processes that enable sociocultural interaction. At issue then are the formal and processual means that the treatment of conflict takes in different societies. These means constitute frames for the definition of social experience that are used by social actors in the interpretation of events within the terms of an overriding sociocultural logic that is in turn refigured by these interpretive frames.
