Once a week I will start a class by covering an event of global importance that is particularly relevant in the anthropological debate. Each topic addresses an issue at the crossroad between ethnic identity, world religion, social norms vs. individual choices and the power of a nation-state to define the outcome and bring the matter to a close or not.
Select one topic covered in class and write a five page report that summarizes your understanding of the issue. I need to see an introduction, a conclusion and the citing of all references including newspapers and other social media sources. You are free to select a topic of your liking as long as it is of anthropological relevant and you check and clear the topic with me first.
The topic I have chosen is going to be on the war in Yemen.
Reference questions for the paper to answer:
