Minor - Introduction to Anthropology

ANTH 1006  Introduction to Anthropology


ANTR 1005


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students explore the core concepts of Anthropology through consideration of the following questions: What does it mean to be human? What are the origins of our species and of our contemporary ways of life? What roles do culture and power play in shaping our perceptions, experiences and behaviours? How did we come to eat the foods we eat and speak the languages we speak? How do different cultures think differently about sex and gender? How might a holistic perspective help us to better understand and address the social and environmental problems we face in the contemporary world?
