ANT 208 - Cross-Cultural Love and Family (1)

This course focuses on the wide variety of ways that people organize their families and their love lives around the world. Students will study the conceptualization of family and kinship, cultural definitions of relatedness, and enduring human bonds. We will focus on continuity and social change across cultures and the ways in which the meaning of family has been transformed by migration, multi-ethnic, interfaith and transnational relationships, same-sex relationships, friendships, new reproductive and genetic technologies, polygamy, and the influence of the internet. Prerequisite: ANT 101 , SOC 101 , SOC 102  , SOC 273 , GSS 171 , or EST 123 . Offered every third year.
