This course includes:
Anthropology studies the elements that unite us a species, as well as the diversity apparent in our bodies and behaviour. It has traditionally explored institutions found across cultures such as religion, economy, polity, and family, but the discipline has evolved along with the modern world so that it now looks at phenomena as diverse as corporate structures, scientific organisations, film, social media and so on.
This course introduces students to this exciting discipline, and particularly at the place of cultural anthropology within the wider field of anthropology. Students will explore the key questions that cultural anthropology aims to answer, the main methodologies employed by modern anthropologists, and ethical considerations that must be taken into account. The course also looks back in time at the history of anthropology, putting modern anthropology in context by establishing its origins and tracing its development over the years.
In short, the course aims to give students an appreciation for the diversity of human experience, and the critical tools necessary for researching the social and cultural aspects of it.
