ANTHR 7444 - [God(s) and the Market]


     
Fall. Next offered 2020-2021. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ANTHR 4444 .

H. Miyazaki.

One of the oldest and most powerful insights of anthropology is that different domains of society such as religion and economy shape and condition each other. We will discuss a variety of old and new anthropological explorations into the intersections of religion and economy, from Max Weber’s classical study of the relationship between Protestantism and the rise of capitalism to recent studies of the work of faith in financial markets. This seminar is intended to bring together students interested in religion and students interested in business and economy.
