Anthropology of Violence, Peace and Conflict (Wednesday,4th period)             
Violence and conflict take on many forms in all societies.Violent exclusions based on ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religion are paramount to many conflicts present in the world today. This course will address violence in the context of anthropological theory and will draw on examples from ethnographic research on a range of topics such as tribal conflict, modern warfare, political violence and terrorism. Students will study violence as a phenomena ever present in our histories and our daily lives and also look at subjects such as trauma, social suffering and recovery.
 
Introduction to Cultures andSocieties of the World < (Thursday,4th period)
Thiscourse will explore fundamental topics in both classic and contemporary anthropological literature. There will be some lectures, occasional talks by visiting speakers, some films and slides and a substantial amount of time will be spent in discussion in small groups. Details about how these groups work will emerge gradually, sometimes through experience. Students will engage in individual research projects which will be carried out throughout the semester using ethnographic methods. 
 
Peoples and Cultures of the Modern Middle East (Friday, 4 th period)
Popular media tends to present the area known as the MiddleEast as being rife with issues such as political conflict, violence and sectarianism, however there are rich histories and complex social relations underlying the contemporary situations in this diverse area. This class will examine issues such as history, colonialism, religion, political economy and culture to help students develop an understanding of the modern history and unfolding of current events in the region.<   Concentrating primarily on anthropological literature the class willlook at critical issues and topics pertaining to culture, the emergence of various forms of political power in particular contexts, the role of symbols, rituals and ideologies in legitimizing and contesting power, the nature of conflict and violence, the establishment and perpetuation of social inequality, and the character of the modern state and its relations with civil society.
