Course Description: 

Anthropology is a comparative study of human societies and their diversity past and present. The field challenges us to consider the ways in which people’s lives and social relations are shaped by political, economic, and historical forces. This class takes a survey-style approach to presenting a broad range of past and current theories, methodology, and concepts in cultural anthropology in order to introduce students to a range of human social life and cultural phenomena.

Course Description:

This course is a cross-cultural examination of sexual ideologies and practices. In it, we will address a wide range of cultural manifestations of sexuality and variations within particular cultures around the world. The course will primarily be focused on contemporary culture, but we will also address historical shifts in conceptualizing sexuality as a moral and medicalized discourse. There will be a special emphasis on cultural, economic, political, and religious influences on sexual thought and practice though we will also touch on psychological and other theoretical models of sexuality.

Course Description:

Globalization, a process of integrating countries, peoples, economies, and cultures into a larger whole, is as old at the travels of Marco Polo and at the same time as brand new as the Internet. Digital technologies and improvements in transportation have greatly reduced the barriers of time and distance. This has led to profound changes in the gender roles assigned to women and men, the ways that economies, governments, and cultures function, and the opportunities for meaningful work and “a good life.”  It is the best of times and the worst of times. Today extreme wealth and desperate poverty exist side by side. Some women are heads of state and while others are subjugated to outmoded ideologies about women’s natural inferiority. Consumer goods are plentiful and inexpensive but only as a result of sweatshops in the global south.  Global corporations such as Nike, MacDonald’s, and Coca Cola dominate markets all over the world while small farmers and producers struggle to survive.  This course will explore these themes by looking at the legacies of colonialism, the global assembly line, the global market for domestic labor and sex work, changing patterns of immigration, and social justice movements.
