Anthropology is a century-old, multidisciplinary attempt to understand human behavior as fully as possible--especially those stable, shared patterns known as "culture." A good first step for students of anthropology, and the goal of this course, is to "make the strange familiar, and the familiar strange." This course begins with a brief survey of anthropology's "four fields" (archaeology, linguistics, physical anthropology, and cultural anthropology), before exploring some of the variations in the most common cultural themes: food, kinship, marriage, religion, etc. Throughout, we will also consider the experience of being an anthropologist ("culture shock," for example), and turning the anthropological lens towards our own society. Primary readings are Cultural Anthropology: The Human Challenge (13th ed), and A Primate's Memoir.
