ANTH 390 - Nomadism

(4)
The course sets out to study a range of nomadic societies around the world, to notice their variety and similarity, and to understand the dynamics that differentiate mobile from stationary peoples. Nomadism was the original human condition. As an adaptive strategy, it has lasted longer than any other - even as nowadays traditionally nomadic societies are dying out or being absorbed by sedentaries. As the world becomes more global, and as disenfranchised communities move underground, nomadism has even become a technique of resistance. Even years Spring.
