A study of the dynamic nature of socio-cultural systems in an increasingly interconnected, “globalizing” world. This
course briefly introduces the development of anthropological theory and the methods of its research. It then explores
some of the diverse and constantly changing patterns found in human societies in, for example, the organization of
kinship and economic, political, social, and religious systems.
This course examines the theory and practice of ethnography. As participant-observers, students immerse themselves in a particular social setting, record field notes, conduct interviews, analyze data and report findings.
