О курсе

Social anthropology explores social and cultural diversity of contemporary world drawing on a distinct research method of ethnography — an in-depth participant observation of human communities and institutions. This English language-taught minor offers a project-oriented introduction to this discipline, its theory and history. Its methodological focus enables students to learn this discipline’s skills that are used both in academic research and applied fields from international marketing and social policies to museum practices and public history.

This course introduces anthropological approaches to social and cultural analysis of the contemporary world. The course reviews anthropology’s main research areas and theoretical schools. Students will learn how long-term participant observation (“ethnography”) has emerged as a key method of the discipline; what are the method’s main scope and preconditions today, and what critical skills it requires as well as develops. We will explore how anthropology responded to a demand for knowledge about social and cultural differences in modern empires and multiethnic states, and discuss academic, applied and social tasks that it faces now. Charting ways in which anthropology envisages its place and mission in today’s society, the course outlines distinctly anthropological contributions to the understanding of contemporary social and cultural processes. By highlighting differences between anthropological research methods and those of other social sciences and humanities, it demonstrates its value both in academic and applied research.
