ANTH 72400 [  ]: Commodities, Colonialism, Capitalism [In-person]
GC: TH. 9:30-11:30 am, Rm. TBA, 3 credits, Prof. Marc Edelman
What is gained (and what might be lost) by looking at colonialism and capitalism and related historical/cultural processes (imperial expansion, genocides, racialization, underdevelopment, environmental crises, extractivism, the human/nature binary) through a single-commodity lens? This course will consider classic and recent case studies of commodities such as sugar, cotton, maize, soy, wheat, palm oil, and petroleum. It will scrutinize key analytical concepts, such as “fictitious commodities,” commodity and value chains, buyer power, flex crops, financialization, and sustainability and planetary futures.

ANTH 73500 [  ]:  Europe in Motion [In-person]
GC: W. 4:15pm -6:15pm, Rm. TBA, 3 credits, Prof. Gerald Creed
Fulfills area requirement for students in the Cultural & Linguistic Anthropology subfields.       
With Britain’s departure from the European Union and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it seems that Europe is under assault on both its eastern and western fronts. Add the challenges presented by recent waves of immigrants from parts south, and the continent can perhaps only be characterized as in a state of flux. This course will examine these dynamics, but it begins with the premise that Europe has always been in motion. The very national boundaries that define the continent today are the products of prior population movements and displacements. Moreover, which regions and peoples are included in the notion of Europe has shifted significantly in different eras, and is always contested. Using motion as a broad focus that includes not only the migrations of people and the political economic forces that propel them, but social, political, and religious movements more generally, this course aspires to give students an appreciation of both the history of anthropology in Europe and the profile of contemporary dynamics being studied by anthropologists working there. It begins with background on the emergence of continental and regional boundaries and the divergent historical and political-economic geographies they reflect. We then review some of the classic debates in the anthropology (and history) of Europe. The rest of the course attends to issues and topics of contemporary interest to anthropologists working in Europe, with particular attention given to the interwoven issues of migration, race, and religion. We will conclude by examining the causes and consequences of both Brexit and the war in Ukraine. Readings will include several monographs/ethnographies and selected articles/chapters. Course requirements will include either two papers (at midterm and end of term), each comparing two monographs/ethnographies (beyond those assigned in the course), or a term paper on a topic relevant to the student’s interests (subject to approval by the instructor).

GC: TH. 2:00-4:00pm, Rm. TBA, 3credits, Prof. Setha Low. Remote dates TBA. 
This section open to GC Anthropology doctoral students only. Seats are limited. Cross listed w. EES 79903, WSCP 81000.
This seminar explores the beach—the liminal space between land and water--as a site of racial exclusion, environmental and cultural vulnerability and the privatization.  Beaches, that in the US and most of the world, are considered a public resource for everything from recreation to a workplace, are increasingly being closed off.  In the US historically racial exclusion made it difficult, if impossible, for POC to use their traditional spaces and Black beaches were taken by eminent domain and developed for solely white use.  Today, exclusions include anyone who might want to fish, sunbath, walk, or rest on public land that has private owners nearby who use illiberal means to restrict access.  Planning and design of towns with beaches has further these exclusionary practices. 
Equally important, beaches are fragile ecological spaces and increasingly being misused and misappropriated, closing them off to people who need them to a living.  Issues of sexuality, sexual orientation, body practices, religion, and many other kinds of exclusions continue to plague strategies has accelerated the inbility to access places that were once foundational for those who lived there.

ANTH 82000 [ ]: The Politics of Care: Abolition, Commoning, Reaction [In-Person]   
GC: TH. 4:15pm - 6:15pm, Rm. TBA, 3 credits, Profs. Miriam Ticktin and Jeff Maskovsky
Instructor permission required. Students should email ONE paragraph, explaining how the course fits into their scholarly endeavors, to Jmaskovsky@gc.cuny.edu and Mticktin@gc.cuny.edu
This seminar will examine the ethics and politics of care. We will consider care as an affective state, a form of practice, and an ethicopolitical obligation. But we will not begin with the presumption that care is a self-evident good, or that it is ever innocent or free from violence. Nor is our goal to posit a definitive theory of care. Rather, we will treat care as we and our informants often do in our everyday lives: as a problematic concerning the distribution of political and moral responsibility across social, cultural, political and economic boundaries. We will thus use the concept as a springboard into the theoretical and ethnographic exploration of political and ethical life and of different governing regimes of life itself. While care can be thought about in relation to humanitarianism, repair work, extinction, social reproduction, and other topics, after introducing the concept, we will focus on three political approaches to care that are particularly prominent today: care as a form of abolitionist politics; care in relation to the creation of the commons; and reactions against these and other political projects of care, which include ecofascism, survivalist groups, eugenics, militias, and the broader politics of white community resentment. Part of this will involve exploring why care has surfaced recently as both an object of ethnographic inquiry and a new moral and political imperative. We are interested in how care creates new political subjects and collective formations, how it creates forms of relationality (and not just moral dispositions), and how political imagination figures in these forms of care.

GC: TH. 4:15-6:15pm, Rm. TBA, 3 credits, Prof. Matthew Reilly 

ANTH 84400 [ ]: Heritage Pragmatics [In-Person]   
GC: T. 11:45am-1:45pm, Rm TBA, 3 credits, Prof. Alexander Bauer
The concept of “heritage” has in recent years become a catchword so broad—and invoked across so many contexts and disciplines—that its meaning has become both fragmented and diffuse. At the same time, renewed urgency for removing monuments to White supremacy and redressing the legacies of colonialism have brought widespread attention to the power of images and the ways that heritage acts both to bind communities together and construct boundaries between them. This class seeks to examine how we approach and examine heritage’s itineraries and pragmatics—its practical effects in the world—in both the discourses and rhetorics of heritage (how is heritage invoked and talked about) and in what heritage does when it is invoked, encountered, and circulated.
The first part of the class will consist of the reading and discussion of old and new texts on pragmatism in philosophy, law, history, and anthropology, including works by and on Peirce, Dewey, DuBois, Rorty, West, and Posner. The second part of the class will consider applications of a pragmatic approach to questions of heritage, and assess its implications for heritage practice more broadly.

ANTH 70900 - Anthropology and Media
GC:   W. 4:15 – 6:15pm, 3 credits, Prof. Christa Salamandra  
Anthropology and Media foregrounds the discipline’s unique contribution to media studies. The seminar traces various methodological and textual approaches to media ethnography, with particular attention to the production, consumption, and circulation of mediated culture mass-mediated forms. We will explore the politics of production, structures of labor, contexts of consumption, contingencies of framing, digital activism, and online networking. Case studies draw on various geographic regions, media forms, and professional contexts, including: Hollywood and Bollywood producers; crime reporting and security discourses in Argentina; development-funded television in Afghanistan; reconfigurations of citizenship and belonging among Eritrean migrants; race and counter-publics of resistance in the US; independent filmmaking and the state in Korea; liminality and (counter)revolution in Egypt; mobile phones, youth, and intimacy in Mozambique; the politics of image circulation in Indonesia; and pro-regime media making in Iran. Book-length studies are assigned to generate reflection on the craft of ethnographic writing, and to inspire and enhance fieldwork design. 

ANTH 71000 – Anthropology of Science and Medicine
GC: TH. 2:00 - 4:00pm, 3 credits, Prof. Murphy Halliburton 
Discourses and practices of science and medicine remained bracketed off from sociocultural analysis in anthropology and related fields until the 1970s and 1980s. In the last four decades though, science and medicine have been examined by anthropologists and scholars in the interdisciplinary field of Science and Technology Studies as social practices subject to the same interpolations with history, culture, and social inequalities as more traditional subjects of anthropological analysis such as gender, politics, or religion. Anthropologists have written ethnographies of peoples and practices that range from nuclear physicists to brain scanning technologies to nonwestern medical systems to the use of psychopharmaceuticals. This class provides an introduction to formative works in the anthropology of science and medical anthropology and examines contemporary work that engage with topics at the intersection of these fields such as controversies over genetics and eugenics. In addition to readings that will represent different theoretical approaches in diverse global settings, students will be choosing an ethnography from the field of the anthropology of science or medicine that fits their research interests to write on and present in class.
