ANTH 121 Introduction to Social Anthropology




Students will learn the core concepts and methods of social anthropology, and be introduced to a wide variety of cultural responses to the challenges of human life: surviving and thriving in particular environments, communicating ideas and beliefs, organizing societies, and finding creative outlets for expression. We will also explore the process and effects of rapid cultural change, engendered through colonization, the expansion of capitalism, and globalization.
