ANTH 312 - World Ethnography (3 credits)


(Prereq: ANTH 102  or permission of the instructor) This course defines ethnography from an anthropological perspective and presents the foundations for studying human cultures holistically, empirically, and historically. Ethnography is the study of a human culture and includes examination of social roles and relationship dynamics, subsistence/economy, customs, political climate, religion, etc. Discussions will also examine the use and misuse of ethnographic information. This course will explore various styles of ethnography through anthropological case studies and will draw from rural and urban communities and populations from around the world.
