Mobility

CULANTH 744S

This seminar explores theories (e.g. Locke on portable property), vehicles (boats), travellers (pirates, pilgrims, migrants), media (books, money, gravestones, genealogies) to recognize the phenomenon of mobility and its consequences. The historical expansion of western state and trade forms will be a major theme, contrasted with non-western mobilities. The course emphasises external rather than internal social relations. 3 units.
