ANTHR 1101 - FWS: Culture, Society, and Power


Fall, spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

First-Year Writing Seminar.


This First-Year Writing Seminar is devoted to the anthropological study of the human condition.  Anthropology  examines all aspects of human experience, from the evolution of the species to contemporary challenges of politics, environment, and society.  The discipline emphasizes empirically rich field research informed by sophisticated theoretical understandings of human social life and cultural production. The diversity of anthropology’s interests provides a diverse array of stimulating opportunities to write critically about the human condition. Topics vary by semester.
