3 SS, CD, WR
Second Semester. This course explores ethnographic representations of meaningful social experience and collective identity through an examination of rites of passage, dietary habits, human-animal relationships, funerary practice, sexuality, gender, and the like. It examines how the anthropologist makes sense out of the diverse ways people of various cultures, American included, represent systems of meaning. The course addresses concerns not only of Anthropology majors but also of students of history, literature, and the humanities.
