ANTH 203 - Contemporary Pacific Studies


4 credit(s)
Oceania is a region of extraordinary cultural diversity, including Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. The Pacific has long been an object of European interest being imagined as a serene, exotic, and savage paradise. These images reflect Western desires and discourses, and counter everyday life in the Pacific Islands. This course will explore the relationship between western and local/indigenous representations of culture while also focusing on the dynamics of social life and transformations associated with de/colonization and globalization in the Pacific.
