ANTHR 3426 - [Economic Anthropology]

Spring. Next offered 2018-2019. 4 credits. Student option grading.

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.
