A Creative Spin on Teaching Anthropology

  1. Kudos to Professor Natrajan for bringing these issues to the classroom and getting these highlights. This method of intensive research into the social relations of a single commodity has a deep anthropological history. Sidney W. Mintz used this technique in _Sweetness and Power: The Place of Sugar in Modern History_. Mintz also taught a graduate seminar which asked students to research a single crop or commodity.

    Great work by Professor Natrajan to take this to undergraduates and provide encouraging news on relevant anthropology.
