Socio- Cultural Anthropology is a social science that provides a comprehensive understanding of human diversity. In my view, Socio-Cultural Anthropology is characterized by two things – (1) its method of constructing knowledge through fieldwork, and (2) its focus on the study of a variety of human activities in cultures and societies differently located in time or space. We will begin this course with an exploration of various concepts, methods, and theories that anthropologists have developed over the past one hundred years to document human diversity. We will examine topics such as food, clothing, family, kinship, marriage, gender and sexuality, health care, inequality, politics, religion, nation, nationalism and ethnicity, colonialism, and globalization. Course Requirements In this course, students will be required to attend all class sessions and attend a weekly section meeting with a teaching assistant. They will be asked to read carefully the assigned readings. Most of the readings are available through the Web CT. Please complete the assigned readings prior to the date scheduled and take notes so that you can engage more seriously in the lecture and retain key ideas, concepts and terms. Students are expected to come to class prepared to discuss reading assignments, raise questions, and participate in all class and section activities. Students will be required to take an in-class midterm exam , a final exam, and write four short papers (described below). Grading scale: Midterm 20% Final 25% Short Papers (four) 30% Attendance/Participation 25%
