ANTH 1000 - Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

Hours: 4
In this course, we will discuss the variety and significance of human experiences using perspectives drawn from the tradition of social and cultural anthropology. Case studies and theoretical essays will emphasize cultural practices and identities as fluid and contested, emerging from processes of social conflict as well as the continuity of traditions. In applying these concepts and theoretical tools to social life, students will be expected to bring in their own diverse experiences to enrich the class, as well as conduct hands-on ethnographic research projects of their own.
