ANTH 379     Ethnicities  (4)

This course is an examination of ethnic identities as cultural phenomena responding to social, economic, and political contexts and of identities as they articulate with subsistence, gender, religion, and caste or class. The course will include a cross-cultural survey and then a consideration of how ethnicity has been politicized and celebrated in America with the changing ideological models of assimilation, pluralism, and multiculturalism. The end of the course will involve the study of creolized ethnicities in the American South. Prerequisite: ANTH 104.
