Mutuazione: 22902520-2 LABORATORIO DI ETNOGRAFIA in Servizio sociale e Sociologia L-40 N0 POMPEO FRANCESCO


The main course of 6 credits in presence proposes a survey of themes and central problems of cultural and social anthropology. After having retraced some hubs of research - the concept of culture, the overcoming of the "race", relativism / ethnocentrism, ethnic identity, the analysis of the historical-social processes of contact that from the colonial situation reach the current realities of globalization, some research lines will therefore be studied in depth: the first is related to gender and body, a second one dedicated to migration and citizenship also in relation to services, in which the results of a research in a peripheral Roman territory will be presented, finally the third connected to the analysis of new parental and family realities. This program is integrated with the 3 cfu Ethnography Laboratory partly at a distance, through seminar meetings and with the analysis of a chosen anthropological essay included in the list published below.
