ANTH 409/RMES 500Q

Applied Anthropology
Natural Resource and Educational Policy Focus

Spring 2006

The relationship between anthropological research methods and their application to solving social problems is as old as the discipline itself. From early engagements with colonial regimes in Africa and North America through to contemporary interventions in healthcare, education, and natural resource management, anthropologists have variously claimed that their approach lends an important and unique vantage point for resolving social problems. In this course we will examine the strengths and weaknesses of applied anthropology through a focus on natural resource management and public education policy assessment. Students will have an opportunity to engage in real-time applied research projects conducted collaboratively with community-based organizations in the Lower Mainland. This is a seminar course in which the participation of students in class discussions, exercises, and group activities is expected.
