ATH 335L Multiculturalism in Europe: Anthropological Perspectives (3)

Explores diverse expressions and challenges of multiculturalism in Europe. Readings and class discussions develop anthropological tools and critical perspectives to better understand processes through which identities are constructed and experienced, and to analyze political, economic and historical dynamics through which identity groups develop and interact. Attention is given to the construction of national identities and unmarked racial, religious and sexual majorities against which minority experiences play out, and to understanding politics of difference, ideologies of integration, and processes of cultural change in particular European contexts.
