This course uses an evolutionary approach to investigate human biological and bio-cultural variation in time and space. Through a study of the basics of population genetics, an evaluation of our closest living relatives, nonhuman primates, and an exploration of the biological and cultural pathways traversed by our ancestors to become modern Homo sapiens, students learn the depth and complexity of the human story. Laboratory exercises dealing with human genetics, hominin fossils, and evolution are integrated with lectures to give students hands-on learning experience.

Additional Course Details: 

Native people of North America have diverse histories beginning in time immemorial.  In this course, our aim is to develop an understanding of Indigenous peoples, their diversity, their histories, and their living cultures. We begin by exploring the first peopling of the New World and surveying Indigenous history through European colonization and subsequent oppression and culture change after the 15th century. We will consider the impacts Native American/European contact has had on both Indigenous and Euro-American cultures, and how this relationship impacted fundamental aspects of the construction of the United States. We will examine perspectives from diverse academic disciplines and multimedia about Native peoples. Throughout the course, we will examine personal and Tribal identities, including dimensions of nation, education, family, authenticity, gender, and sexuality, how these developed over time, and how they are being produced and reproduced today. We will also reflect on the ways Indigenous people have been and continue to be studied and future directions for such studies, particularly considering the relationship between Native Americans and anthropologists.  

This class is cross-listed with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Minor and with Women's and Gender Studies!

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.
