ANT 101 - Cultural Anthropology (1)

The course provides a cross-cultural, critical perspective on human behavior and society. The diversity of human cultures from nomadic food foragers to industrialized city dwellers is examined, and the implications of subsistence, social, economic, political, and religious systems for the lives of men and women are explored through readings, videos and lively discussions. Students are provided with tools to more objectively compare other cultures with their own. Emphasis on non-Western cultures. Not open to seniors without permission of the instructor.
