ANTH 268 - Trinidad Culture & Society


4 credit(s)
Designed to prepare students for travel to Trinidad and Tobago in the Winter Term (ANTH 368 /SOCWK 368 ). The course covers various features of Trinidad and Tobago’s history from its early imperial encounter to its present post-colonial condition. Additionally, the class covers contemporary culture and local and global political economy. Perhaps most importantly, the course requires students to create a research project to be implemented as field research in Trinidad and Tobago. In this sense, the course is preparation for what anthropologists and social workers would refer to as a ‘field methods’ class. For this element of the class, students must create a research project, conduct preliminary textual and internet research, and begin making contacts in Trinidad and Tobago. Students therefore must be fully prepared at the end of this course to conduct self-directed, ethnographic research in Trinidad and Tobago. Also listed as SOCWK 268 . Offered alternate years during Fall.
