ANT 379 - The Creation of Inequality

Credits 3
Requirements: Prerequisite: SOC 101 or ANT 111 or SOC 113 or ANT 113
An examination of the variety of human cultures, archeologically and ethnographically, from simple hunting and gathering bands to more complex societies including early city states and empires. The course explores in what sense these early hunting and gathering societies are or are not egalitarian and considers how hierarchy develops in a variety of contexts, including big-man societies, stratified chiefdoms and early states. Dimensions of equality and inequality including class and gender are examined. Cross-listed with SOC 379
