Inhoud vak

Through ethnography anthropologists aim to find out what moves people
and how they can explain people’s ideas and practices. Ethnographic
writing skills are therefore very important in anthropology. The
students will read two ethnographic monographs (a classic and a
contemporary one) and write a short essay
with the help of some additional literature.
