How do human beings organize themselves in societies? What do we call “families” and how do they form? What type of analysis does anthropology propose about parenthood, and symbolic, political and religious systems?

Prospective anthropology helps us to understand and anticipate phenomena that transform our ways of life today. It gives a cross-cutting look at the actions, practices, and words of those people with whom anthropological researchers work.

To understand anthropology is to accept changing your view of the world, and to shift your perpsective of your own habits. If you want to understand the world and its contemporary changes more deeply, follow these researchers in their field, and experiment with other cultural references.

In this course, you will debate with professors and students about family, migrations, virtual worlds, and the world of « invisibles. » You will learn the basis of the anthropological approach and what it can bring you as a reflection tool about your own society and your everyday life. This course gives you the opportunity to compare your experiences and to exchange points of view with people from all around the world.

Professors immersed in the heart of various social practices, political and economic issues will share their experiences with you after years of research in fields that they are passionate about.

If you are curious about everything, and if you are interested in understanding your own society but also unknown societies, this course is for you!
