Student for a Day - Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology
- Wednesday 11 December 2019
Are you interested in studying the international bachelor's programme in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology? Do you want to know more about what it is like to study at Leiden University? Be a Cultural Anthropology and Development Student for a Day! By attending a lecture with a current anthropology student, you can learn all the ins-and-outs of this programme.
Culture & Globalisation
“Culture and Globalisation” introduces the key concepts cultural anthropologists need to describe human differences in the global relations of today. Since the nineteenth century the core problem of anthropology and development sociology has been to investigate what exactly are the differences between people, and how they can be maintained, changed or manipulated. Anthropology has long assumed that such differences were either biologically or culturally established – in other words were "essential" differences. "Culture and Globalisation" aims to offer students insight into how globalization has changed the anthropological image of human differences, but so that the classical anthropological critique of the relationship between culture and biology and therefore race and kinship remains relevant, albeit differently from how it was thought of for most of the twentieth century.
