Description
Introduction to Anthropology explores the four traditional fields of anthropology: physical/biological anthropology, archeology, linguistic anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Students will be introduced to key research questions, methods, and findings generated by anthropologists from across these sub-disciplines. Topics to be explored include: the fossil trail and hominid evolution, archeological methods and theories used to understand material culture, historical and present-day approaches to the study of language, and core concepts in cultural anthropology such as ritual, social structure, and meaning. The course employs a cross-cultural approach to allow students to gain an appreciation of the diversity of past and present human cultures.
