ANTH 3030 - Topics in Sociocultural Anthropology

Goals: To study topics in the subdiscipline of sociocultural anthropology. Intended primarily for anthropology majors or those interested in majoring in anthropology.

Content: Focus varies. While the specific topic of the course may vary from year to year, ANTH 3030 will focus on studying humans as social and cultural beings. The approaches that sociocultural anthropologists take to the study of human beings are many, varied and occasionally contentious. With this in mind, this course will take up a specific topic and examine it using various approaches—emphasizing the ways that humans make, remake and represent meanings and behaviors in social and cultural contexts. The class will discuss anthropological approaches to research and the ethnographies that sociocultural anthropologists typically produce. Recent examples: Museums, Exhibitions, and Representation and Anthropology of Travel and Tourism.

Taught: Annually, Fall semester

Prerequisite: One 1000-level ANTH course or consent of instructor (ANTH 1160 is recommended)

Credits: 4
