ANTHR 4425 - [Hope as a Method]

Fall. 4 credits.

Next offered 2014-2015.

H. Miyazaki.

In this course, we will seek to carve out a space for a new kind of anthropological engagement with philosophy and theology. Following an examination of ways in which anthropologists have engaged with philosophy and theology, we will examine a full range of philosophical and theological reflections on hope. Texts will be drawn from the following traditions: Kantian philosophy, Marxist philosophy, existentialism, pragmatism, political theology, education theory, feminism, and queer theory. The goal of this course is to confront the character of hope in the production of academic knowledge through an investigation of academics’ reflection on hope itself.
