ANP 330: Race, Ethnicity, and Nation introduces students to anthropological approaches to forms of collective identity and social difference, addressing nationalism, ethnicity, and focusing especially on questions of race and racism. The objective of the course is to introduce students to key concepts in the anthropology of race, identity and difference, including the historical development of nationalism and ideas about race and ethnicity, the cultural politics of identity, subjective experiences of racial and national categories, and social conflict involving such categories.
Students can take this course online from anywhere in the world and make progress towards their degree. All that students need is a computer, a modern browser, and a broadband internet connection. None of the anthropology online classes have an on-campus component or require that students purchase expensive textbooks.
