Course unit content

The first part of the course will focus on concepts, practices and methodologies
of cultural anthropology, paying particular attention to the
dimension of ethnographic research, several examples of which will be provided. After having historically contextualised the birth
of anthropology and the change of ethnographic perspective we will move on to the analysis of some fundamental concepts such as those of culture,
cultural relativism, stereotype, identity, gender, kinship,
ethnocentrism, cultural translation, highlighting the complexity and the
peculiarity of anthropological discourse as a critical tool for reading
different social processes. Special attention will be paid to fundamental themes of contemporary society such as migration and contemporary mobility, intercultural processes, gender and new forms of kinship.
In the second part of the course
we will focus on some case studies in specific ethnographic contexts, with a particular focus on the context of the Cape Verdean archipelago where there has been a strong feminisation of migration and a profound renegotiation of gender relations.
