When Offered: Fall; Spring
GEN ED: Social Science Designation; Integrative Learning Experience (Theme: “From Empire to Globalization”)
This course explores the diversity and unity of human experience through the lens of cultural anthropology. Using case studies and other texts, students will gain familiarity with different cultural worlds. As they do so, they will be asked to think critically about their own cultural ideas and actions, to reflect on problems facing humanity in the contemporary world, and to understand the various ways in which they are historically and socially connected to other people in other places.
