ANTHRO 321B: From Marx TO Piketty: Toward An Anthropology Of Wealth, Inequality and Power

This seminar will explore the ways in which theorists and researchers from Karl Marx to Thomas Piketty have conceptualized, studied, and analyzed inequality in capitalist societies. In considering the ways in which Marx, Piketty and other scholars approach profit, accumulation, wealth, inequality, class and power, we will be especially interested in how these are shaped by their ideas and assumptions about kinship, sentiment, gender, and subjectivity. We will work toward developing an anthropological framework and ethnographic research projects that build on our critical understanding of Marx and Piketty.n The course is limited to graduate students and anthropology majors who have taken Anthropology 90b.

This course explores the emergence of this field of study, asking the following questions: What has motivated a renewed anthropological interest in the subject of ethics?
