Anth 102 available in J-Term 2014
Dr. Ruth Gomberg-Muñoz will offer Anth 102: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology in a two-week J-Term format in January 2014. Class meeting times will be MTWThFSa 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Course description: What do human groups have in common, and how are we different? What do the lifestyles, activities, and beliefs of people on the other side of the world--or even on the other side of town--tell us about ourselves? How are people from disparate places interconnected by globalization and migration? This course will introduce you to the anthropological study of living people, or cultural anthropology. As you review the development of anthropological thought and learn about different types of human cultural patterns, you will consider how cultural anthropology can help us think about our own society and about what it means to be human in different times and places.
Anthropology has moved!
The Department of Anthropology has recently moved from Coffey Hall to BVM Tower, accessed through the new Institute of Environmental Sustainability. The Anthropology main office and most faculty are now located on the 7th floor of BVM, with a few faculty offices also on the 8th floor. A new Anthropology student lounge is also under construction on the 7th floor. Come visit us, and see our new home!
