ANTH 301 - Anthropological Theory (3 credits)


This course will provide an overview of the major theoretical approaches in anthropology. These include a wide range of perspectives such as evolutionary, functionalist, structuralist, and postmodernist, among others. The class will take a chronological approach in order to explore the development of schools of thought through time. We will use case studies to illustrate these theories and discuss how our perspectives inform our understanding and interpretation of human cultures and environments, both past and present. F, S, Su.
