Being and Becoming Human
ANTH 101
Spring 2009
Section: 01   02   03   04  

The four fields of anthropology--archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistics--present a wide range of perspectives on the experiences of being and becoming human. This course introduces students to concepts, methods, and theories from these fields by focusing on several topics central to the discipline and to human existence, e.g., agriculture, family, and race. Moreover, lectures, readings, and audiovisual materials invite critical analysis of broader themes in contemporary anthropology, such as the nature of culture, the problematic notions of evolution and progress, and the negotiation of power within and among diverse human populations.
