Teaching Theory Anthropologically, Close to the Ground

Main Article Content

Thomas Williamson


Abstract:  teaching anthropological theory is complex because there are so many potential approaches one could take.  This essay explores how to teach theory to undergraduates by employing an empirical perspective.  Doing so helps students learn a mode that is new to them and fits their intellectual development, while staying true to anthropology's disciplinary style.
