HOD-837 Ethnography and Crossing Borders

4 semester credits
In this course students learn to understand and use ethnographic tools and develop comparative analysis skills. Crossing borders is an increasingly important theme for Human Development in the 21st century. Ethnography, a comparative cultures methodological framework developed by anthropologists, is a useful set of tools for helping us understand differences and similarities in patterns of Human Development. Along with the crossing of national political borders are the psychological, cultural, and social borderlands we experience as we travel to contexts dramatically different from those we may be familiar with and where we meet the “Other.” For many of us these borderlands are encountered, negotiated, and lived on a daily basis.
