ANTH105/112: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology
According to the General Catalog, ANTH 150B1 Many Ways of Being Human: “introduces the student to anthropological perspectives on cultural diversity. The course focuses on gender, race, ethnicity and class through readings by and about peoples of the non-western world.”
Anthropology seeks to understand and build respect for the many ways people understand and interact with each other and their surroundings. In this course, we will discuss how anthropologists and other social scientists engage in research, cover some of the foundational writing in the discipline, read material by non-western authors, and review writings about the peoples of the non-western world.
