Students gain an overview of the research field economic anthropology and deepen their understanding by case studies.

The homo oeconomicus is no more. The popular figure of classical capitalism has long changed into the homo reciprocans who maximises not only his own benefit but that of others, too. When men act economically, they act socially at the same time.

The course offers an overview over different positions (positivists vs. substantivists) and examines stations in the genesis of capitalism (Marx, Weber, Polanyi). We will look at economic practices as gift giving and analyse the function of the gift in society. Bourdieus terminology of capital is our analytical framework: how can different forms of capital be converted into each other? What are the roles of production, work, money and capital in historic and contemporary society?

Lectures, student presentation, close reading, discussion.

Oral presentation or essay of 10-12 pages.
