Additional Course Details: 

As the name implies, this course will focus on embodiment, and particularly how the human body can and does become imbued with one’s life history. The hardships of marginalization and inequality that humans face in life, diseases they battle, changes to diets and lifeways, migration, and many aspects of identity can become embodied, especially on skeletal and dental tissues. This course will focus on the social theories of embodiment and identity, with special attend to these concepts’ application in bioarchaeology.
