Course Prospectus: This course is designed to provide a survey of current information and debate in cultural anthropology. We will learn about the world’s cultures by looking at ethnographic examples of increasing size and scale. We will begin with nomadic bands of hunters and gatherers and end with the roles of indigenous peoples within a global economy. In between we will study the transition to social and political complexity with the rise of chiefdoms and ancient states. We will consider cultures clashes and cultural transitions.
