ANTH 20500 - Human Cultural Diversity


Credit Hours: 3.00.  This course introduces students to the core concepts, themes, methods, and ethical concerns that guide cultural anthropological sensibilities, research and analysis. Students will learn how to identify and interpret the complexities of human culture - what makes cultures different, and in what ways are they more alike than we might assume? Students explore a variety of topics, including: race and racism; ethnicity and nationalism; gender; sexuality; food ways; rights; kinship, family, and marriage; class and inequality; global economy; politics and power; arts and performance; digital worlds; religion, health and illness. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
