Mission e Programma sintetico
MISSION

Scopo del corso è quello di fornire agli studenti una comprensione adeguata del mondo contemporaneo da una prospettiva culturale. Dopo un’introduzione all’antropologia culturale in cui se ne esaminano le origini, i fondamenti teorici e metodologici e le relazioni con le altre scienze sociali e umane, si tratta delle dinamiche culturali dei processi di globalizzazione. Basandosi su una serie di casi di studio riferiti a diverse aree del pianeta, il corso illustra il ruolo svolto da simboli e oggetti nella definizione delle relazioni sociali (uguaglianza, disuguaglianza, gerarchia) e delle identità culturali in contesti diversi (politici, economici, religiosi, etnici).
