AP/ANTH1120 6.0 M: Making Sense of a Changing World
Calendar Description / Prerequisite / Co-Requisite
In this course you will use anthropological approaches to increase your understanding of global issues in diverse locales. This course challenges you to engage with other ways of knowing and being, and to rethink your taken-for-granted knowledge and beliefs through the comparative analysis of the human condition. This course will take a problem-based approach to a range of topics such as: the effects of race and racism, sources of religious conflict, alternate genders and sexualities, First Nations and health, international development and issues of social inequality. Students are encouraged to bring their own knowledge and experience as the first step in thinking like an anthropologist (i.e. rethinking the taken-for-granted). The emphasis in this course is developing skills (analytical thinking, reading, writing). Course credit exclusions: AP/ANTH 1130 6.00 (prior to Fall 2016), AP/ANTH 1120 6.00 (prior to Fall 2014).
