The University as a Culture: A Survivor's Guide

CULANTH 347S

The university generates some of the most influential forms of knowledge in the world, yet we seldom examine the historically specific cultural, social, political, and economic conditions under which knowledge is produced in the laboratories, classrooms, offices, dormitories, Greek-letter societies, and sports complexes that are the infrastructure of the academy. This course will employ readings from a range of disciplines, as well as the investigative and interpretive methods of cultural anthropology, to examine the taken-for-granted context of university life.
