UPDATED COURSE OFFERING: ANTH 324-01 - Iberian Anthropology
This version of the course focuses on the problem of the Portuguese Empire. The empire was the first in the modern world, and the longest lasting, although for much of its duration Portugal was actually “the sick man of Europe.” What accounts for the longevity of the Empire? What were the effects of the Empire in Asia, in South America, in Africa, in Europe? What does all of this have to do with “us”? Such questions orient the course.
