    Africana StudiesScrippsLink

    Description:

    Marxism has had a long and vibrant relationship with Black liberation movements worldwide - from early twentieth-century Harlem to postwar anti-colonial struggles to the Black Panther Party. Such thinkers and activists have linked their efforts to Marx, Lenin, and other central figures, while simultaneously molding Marxism to address the circumstances of people of African descent and infusing the philosophy with approaches from the Black radical tradition. The course will examine classic Marxist texts alongside Black radical contributions and interventions to deepen our understanding of racial capitalism and to illuminate possibilities for liberation that come from a Marxist praxis deeply engaged with important approaches in Black thought.

  • ANTH114SC Science, Medicine, and Colonialism

    AnthropologyScrippsLink

    Description:

    This seminar examines the role of empire in shaping medical and scientific knowledge and practice. Beginning in the eighteenth century, as major scientific developments were unfolding in Europe and the United States, these regions were engaging in colonial expansion in Africa, Asia and the Americas. These two processes were often linked. Colonial aims influenced medico-scientific paradigms, and emergent scientific knowledge shaped how colonizers governed and controlled populations. This course examines these intertwined historical processes and how they laid the foundations for medico-scientific research and practice today. Drawing on anthropological and historical texts, we examine key themes such as scientific racism, hygiene and morality, and the regulation of indigenous knowledges. Throughout, we engage with concepts of the postcolonial and the settler colonial to help us understand the complexity of connections between past and present.

    AnthropologyScrippsLink

    Description:

    This anthropology course considers the relationship between cultural practice, politics, and history in the region of the world now known as Latin America. This will involve taking apart reified notions of regional or national “cultures” to instead consider how cultural practices are complex and fundamentally power-laden. We trace how social relations in Latin America take shape in light of legacies of colonialism, transatlantic slavery, mestizo nation-building, and more. Importantly, we consider what ethnographic approaches might tell us about everyday forms of living and self-making, as well as about political struggles over land, labor, and cultural recognition in the region.

  • ANTH127SC Settler Colonialism

    AnthropologyScrippsLink

    Description:

    This seminar examines processes of settler colonialism and the experiences of indigenous peoples. The central premise of this course is that colonialism is an ongoing process in many parts of the world; we will examine how it operates through sites such as sovereignty, land and territory, medicine, gender and sexuality, and others. At the same time, we will look at how indigenous practices and movements have sought to carve out spaces for critique and resistance.

  • ANTH129SC Politics of Public Art

    AnthropologyScrippsLink

    Description:

    In this class we will explore the politics of public art. While we will look at the political messaging of public art, we will also seek to understand how public art, through its integration into a social geography, has a political impact beyond its meaning. We will see how art claims public space and structures social action, how art shapes social groups, and how art channels economic flows or government power. We will examine how art enters into urban contest and global inequality.
