This module will introduce you to anthropological studies and concepts that will change the way you see the immediate, everyday world around you. You will encounter a range of ethnographic and case study materials and will gain a foundational knowledge of anthropological theory and concepts. The module will allow you to question cultural assumptions and think critically and analytically about key questions and problems in studying the worlds of other people and our own. You will also have the opportunity to develop research and presentation skills, and to start considering the practical and ethical implications of ethnographic fieldwork and social scientific research.
