Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

The course introduces students to economic anthropology, offering a broad overview to a subdiscipline that challenges the very notion of a discreet economic realm separable from others such as religion, kinship or politics. It covers key themes such as egalitarianism, notions of wealth and property, gifts and commodities, community and market exchange, marriage systems, money, symbolic exchange, ecology and the role of nonhumans, and finance. The course is taught using ethnographic case studies. It offers students critical insight into cross-cultural economic themes and allows them to improve their research and presentation skills.
