About the course
The course details anthropological perspectives on war and armed conflict, and discusses how people's everyday lives both influence and are influenced by armed conflict. The course builds on key anthropological concepts such as culture, and students will read ethnographic case studies that document how war and armed conflicts are both world making and world breaking. Topics range from local manifestations of gender, power and displacement, and how they are related to, and impacted by, global phenomena, such as media coverage, arms trade, and humanitarian intervention. The course will be of special interest to students of anthropology as well as students in humanitarian aid, journalism, international relations, political science, and peace and conflict studies.
