Concepts in Political Anthropology

An Encyclopedia by Students in ANTH 423, Political Anthropology, Concordia University (Montreal, Canada)

A note to readers: Each year, entries that have earned a grade in the “A” range will be posted on this site. However, those using this emerging encyclopedia should exercise some caution with “first versions” (v1), which have only undergone preliminary editing and may still require further clarification and substantiation. Versions subsequent to the first will be marked as such. All entries have undergone preliminary editing by the course director. Current students in the course should feel free to choose any of the following entries in order to revise them, rewrite them (in whole or in part), and add new sources. Otherwise, current students should consult this list for possible choices. In addition, students may choose to summarize a theoretical paradigm in Political Anthropology, along with a listing of a given paradigm’s most emblematic works and authors. The purpose of this resource is to offer all students of Political Anthropology, anywhere, a handy study aid, while offering members of the wider public the opportunity to expand their knowledge of political issues.
