Anthropology of Pakistan

Anthropology of Pakistan
In this course we will explore the structure and meaning of Pakistanis’ everyday lives. We will discuss large-scale forces like colonialism, Partition, and the War on Terror, but the focus will be on the ways these forces affect people whose names will never appear in news reports or history books. We will focus particularly on the experiences of women. Readings will include anthropological theory, ethnography, and fiction. In addition, we will also watch some Bollywood cinema.
