ANTH 4070 - Urban Ethnic Cultures

3 hours

Critical examination of how ethnic identity is experienced and articulated in the urban context, historically and contemporarily. Students are exposed to fundamental dynamics that influence the development and maintenance of ethnic cultures in cities by drawing on key concepts from anthropology and urban studies, to include: how ethnic and racial relations are socially structured in the United States; the symbolic materials and mediums through which people express a sense of ethnic identity and belonging (music, dress, dance and stories); and how these expressive cultures unfold in urban settings, both shaped by and reconstituting city life.

Prerequisite(s): None.
