This foundational course, required within the first year of declaring the major, provides students with a cross-field perspective on anthropology through a focus on writing in the discipline. Approaching humankind as cultural and biological beings with distinct as well as interconnected histories, the course exposes students to the varied research practices of cultural, biological, archaeological, and linguistic anthropologists. Students will build skills in reading and research and will practice writing within several disciplinary genres and conventions that reflect anthropology's public as well as scholarly sides. Featured topics provide entry points into key anthropological themes, including the holistic study of human thought, behavior, language, ideologies, and institutions; race, gender, and inequality; and adaptation and change within social and natural environments.
