ANT 110 Introduction to Cultural Anthropology

This course introduces students to cultural anthropology, a discipline that studies what it means to be human. We start by investigating the incredible diversity in human culture, and identifying methods we can use to study how different people make sense of their worlds. We address many aspects of human culture and experience, including language, ways of relating to the environment, race and structural racism, and the variation in gender, family, social organization, politics and economics, religion, arts, and folklore across cultures. Finally, we explore how cultures and societies change within a globalized world.
