REES 428 - C. Asian Pol in Anthro Perspct
The course will examine key social and ideological systems—political and economic patronage, nationalism, and Islam—underlying contemporary politics in post-Soviet Central Asia.  Students will become familiar with anthropological approaches to understanding the concepts of state and society and be expected to use them to gain a deeper and more practical appreciation for addressing the kinds of issues that often bedevil U.S. policymakers working on the region.  The course format will combine lecture and group discussion.
Please note: this course assumes basic familiarity with the history and cultures of the former Soviet Union.
