What is the role of research in understanding and bringing about positive social and political-economic change? How do people living in diverse social and cultural contexts understand, value and work to bring about change themselves? How can we use engaged research to help bring about meaningful positive change at local and global levels? ANT1TLC explores these questions by exploring a series of specific case studies that introduce students to key issues such as: Anthropological Responsibility and Community Change; Anthropology and Human Rights; Gender and Empowerment; Structural Violence and Resilience; How to Think Critically about Development; Protest Culture; Environmental Anthropology. This subject combines primary anthropological methods with those of diversely related disciplines, including Sustainability and Development Studies, Aboriginal Studies, Gender Studies, Politics and Sociology.
