ANTH 4755 - Cultures of Expertise: Science, Power and Knowledge Course uri icon



  • Examines the expertise as a cultural category. Students will consider the historical and cultural contexts of various forms of expertise and the social roles of experts from car mechanics to civil engineers, doctors and scientists. Students will be given opportunities to reflect analytically on their own experiences with increasingly specialized education as they develop "professional vision" in their chosen fields. Same as ANTH 5755.
