ANTY 329 - Culture Change and Global Development

3 credits (Hrs: 3 Lec.)
Anthropology is the study of human diversity across the world and through time; it offers a unique opportunity to investigate the cultural and biological variation among our species, in both a past and present context. This course has several aims: 1) focus on the core dimensions of humanity and culture; 2) examine the variability within and among world cultures focusing on the interconnectedness of politics, subsistence, economics, and cultural process; and 3) explore patterns of culture change associated with colonialism, development, and globalization.  This course will: 1) introduce essential concepts of anthropology regarding: subsistence patterns, technology, economics, kinship, religion, politics, ethnicity, equality and inequality, gender and age status; and 2) examine concepts of culture change, particularly as they relate to economic development, global finance, war and terrorism, population growth, health, and the environment.

Course is generally offered in the fall.
