Skrócony opis:

A comprehensive introduction to the research field of anthropology (either cultural or linguistic) is the aim of the course. Special attention will be paid to the problem of sociocultural and linguistic change.

This introduction will be twofold. On the one hand, students will have the opportunity to discover texts that are considered to be classical within the field. It will provide them with an insight into crucial problems and research questions of anthropology, but also get acquainted with its basic theoretical notions.

On the other hand, the participants of the course will learn the ethnographic fieldwork methods (participant observation, narrative interview, autobiographic interview), digital and analog tools used in anthropology, and the ethical aspects of conducting fieldwork. The skills will be acquired and used in practice within individual micro research projects.

Pełny opis:

The notions of “cultural anthropology” and “linguistic anthropology” evoke connotations with specialist, scientific disciplines. However, in reality, they describe essentially interdisciplinary research on the role of culture and language within social life. Their crucial, distinguishing feature is that they are based on an ethnographic method, which implies conducting fieldwork.

A comprehensive introduction to the research field of anthropology (either cultural or linguistic) is the aim of the course. This introduction will be twofold. On the one hand, students will have the opportunity to discover texts that are considered to be classical within the field and represent theoretical traditions that at different points of time were considered to be prominent: functionalism, structuralism, relativism, phenomenology, hermeneutics or postmodernism. Special attention will be paid to the traditions that focus on sociocultural change: evolutionism, interactionism, transactionism, and postcolonial studies. The course will also broadly address the issue of linguistic change and loss. Students will be provided with an insight into crucial problems and research questions of anthropology. They will be acquainted with basic theoretical notions, but also they will be able to critically refer to them.

On the other hand, the participants of the course will learn the ethnographic fieldwork methods (participant observation, narrative interview, autobiographic interview), the use of software, digital and analog tools facilitating the work in anthropology (skills in recording audio and video, bibliographic tools, tools facilitating the transcriptions etc,), and the ethical aspects of conducting fieldwork. In particular, I will present the basis of the participatory action research model, which is the framework used in research on endangered languages and their revitalization by members of the Center for Research and Practice in Cultural Continuity at the Faculty of “Artes Liberales”.

As a result of the course, students will be prepared to conduct their fieldwork and comprehensive analysis of individually collected materials, conducted with the use of software and other analog and digital tools. The skills will be applied to write a short paper based on individual research – the final effect of the course.

Due to character of the course the broad access to tutoring and consultations will be provided.
