Upper Division Elective: ANT 3420 Consumer Culture (gen ed S)

ANT 3420 Consumer Culture has been approved for Gen Ed “S” credit (social and behavioral sciences) starting August 2017. It is taught as a “bricks-and-mortar” course. In the past, various Business majors have taken the course and done well in it. It is taught every fall semester.

It is not a diversity or international course, but focuses on modern Western society (primarily US, Great Britain, Canada). It is being reviewed for addition to the list of “Cluster Course” electives for the Sustainability Studies major (Cluster A: Ethics, Culture and Human Behavior).

Here is the catalog and course description:

Course Description: Examination of the cultural bases for the consumption of commodities in modern society, employing anthropological concepts and social science methods. Primary emphasis is on the social relationships enacted between people and the things they live with.

Open to all majors, this course answers the question, “Why do we have so much stuff?” Anthropological theories and concepts are introduced each week to investigate the close relationships that link people and the made things they live with–their “material culture”– especially relationships that drive consumption beyond basic needs. Categories of material culture given special focus are clothing, household items, and techno-gear. We examine how these goods circulate in our modern society through studies of gifting, shopping, advertising, the “rituals” of product use, heirlooming, and the politics of recycling and trashing. Specific topics include how things are drawn into our identities, how we extend our bodies and our selves through the things (real and virtual) we manipulate, how we create relationships to other people via things, how things come to have meanings and “social lives,” the sensuality and authenticity of things, and the practices and consequences of object discard and reuse. This course focuses on theories and methods to analyze the “sociality” of goods, applied in real-life case studies.
