ANTHR 4419 - [Anthropology of Corporations]


(SBA-AS)      
Fall. Next offered 2018-2019. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ANTHR 7419 .

M. Welker.

This course develops an anthropological approach to corporations with a focus on large, profit-oriented, publicly-traded corporations. To denaturalize the corporation, we will consider competing cultural logics internal to corporations as well as the contingent historical processes and debates that shaped the corporate form over the past two centuries. The course will examine processes through which various social groups have sought to alter and restrain corporations as well as reciprocal corporate attempts to reshape the social environment in which they operate.
