ANT 1787: Political Economy of the Pacific Rim
Prof. Eriberto P. Lozada Jr., Davidson College
The most important work in this course is to be prepared for each class meeting; this means having thoroughly read the material and being prepared to discuss particular points from the reading. Readings are due on the day listed in the class schedule. I will not lecture on summaries of the readings, but will discuss the implications and difficult points in the material.
Response papers: 10%
Each student will have to write five (5) response papers, one page and double-spaced. They are individually ungraded and require only timely submission for full credit. See the handout for more information.
Field Projects: 30%
All students will conduct two (2) small field projects that involve participant-observation research conducted outside the classroom. These will be graded on both the effort and detail of the fieldnotes and on the contextualization of theoretical ideas discussed in class and in the readings. The fieldwork project can also be extended to substitute either as a second short essay or term paper.
Term Paper: 40%
Students will write one longer research essay (12-15 pages, double spaced) that are worth 40% of the final grade. The long essay will be due on 18 Aug 2004. Topics for the long essay, which can be based on field research conducted at any of our port stops, will be selected by each student, but must be discussed with the instructor prior to 4 July 2004. You must submit a topic proposal, including a bibliography or methodology, to me by 10 July 2004.
Class Participation: 20%
Active participation requires that each student come to class prepared, having read the assigned material before class.
