ANTHR 1190 - Humanity

(GHB) (CA-AS)      
Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

J. Boyarin, A. T. Smith.

This course examines the relation between humanity as a species, our group affiliations, and our individual selves. In an era of increasing division, what remains of our commitment to one another as members of a human community? As contemporary problems challenge us at a global scale, there is a pressing need to revisit the question of our shared human existence. We will touch on an array of human productions and activities, from literature and labor to ritual and religion, in order to assess our commitments to self, community, and species. Together we will seek answers to a single pressing question: what are the obligations of being human? This is not only a question of “who we are”, but also where we are headed.
