Contemporary Perspectives in Ethnography (SOSA 5003W.03)

This class is required for students registered in the MA in Social Anthropology program. It examines ethnographies and critical writings, which grapple with questions of theory and interpretation in a range of contexts—near and far, familiar and strange, local and global.

In special cases, an MA student may take a reading course with a SOSA faculty member, or a graduate-level class offered by another department of the university as an elective.In such cases the student must first obtain the approval of the Graduate Coordinator. The regulations which govern Independent Study, Directed Reading, and Special Topics classes at Dalhousie can be found in the Graduate Calendar.
