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.

Additional Course Details: 

This semester we will primarily explore Afrofuturism - a movement and philosophy that uplifts and celebrates spiritualities, technologies, and arts and culture of African Diaspora communities to re-imagine and create radically new worlds - and its African-based articulations of Africanfuturism or Africanjujuism, taking examples from fiction, creative nonfiction, film, the visual and theatrical or performing arts, and Black anthropologies of art and religion. This background will inform and support our work to help develop an exhibit and series of performance events around Afrofuturism with the Seacoast African American Cultural Center (SAACC), Green Acre Bahá’í and other regional arts and culture organizations.

Additional Course Details: 

This course provides an overview of the synergistic interactions of humans, their diets, and disease from prehistoric through contemporary populations. We will explore the causes and consequences of major social transformations, including the shift from nomadic to sedentary life, animal and plant domestication, urbanism, and globalism through historical, bioarchaeological, epidemiological and anthropological lenses. We will learn the methods by which researchers reconstruct patterns of diet, disease and residential mobility in ancient populations, and how these ancient patterns compare and contrast to those in modern contexts.
