In this module, you will be able to broaden and deepen your understanding of what it means and entails to be an anthropologist today. Building upon the term one module (ANT 2003) examining current theoretical and methodological trends in the discipline of anthropology, term two looks at these in practice, examining the work of anthropologists engaging with debates of public interest. The course asks what insights anthropological theory and methods bring to the examination of timely issues, as well as what challenges such issues pose to the discipline today and how, consequently, the discipline is changing.
