THIS IS A NEW ANTHROPOLOGY COURSE. THIS WILL BE TAUGHT AS ANTH 205:The Anthropology of Insurrections and Revolution

This course examines insurrections and revolutions from an anthropological and comparative perspective in order to discuss questions such as: Why do in some circumstances people rebel and why in others they dont? Why do powerful systems crumble? How do ordinary people act and organize collectively to change situations deemed unbearable? This course analyzes these and other questions through an anthropological, historical, and political review of some of the most important insurrections and revolutions in world history.
