AN 203 INTRODUCTION TO CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY



This course investigates how human societies are organized and the basic concept of “culture”. We develop an understanding of how anthropologists interpret social, economic, and belief systems in different societies. The course also considers how anthropologists conduct research, and what role Anthropology should play in an increasingly global society. Societies studied include those of southern Africa, the South American Amazon, and Papua New Guinea. This is a sophomore level course that requires several research papers. Lecture: 3 hours per week. 3 Credits.
