ANTH 3101 - Issues in Contemporary American Culture and Society

3 hours

Shifting American cultural values, emergent and contested identities, and complex social institutions undergird some of the most significant social issues in America today. Oriented around the core concept of culture and cultural groups, the course is designed to introduce anthropological frameworks for understanding cultural diversity, and to develop critical thinking skills for identifying, describing and explaining the social complexities of American (U.S.) culture. Ethnographic case studies combine with current events to orient the intricacies of cultural diversity, while discussion and critical reflection raise awareness and broaden perspectives of lives and livelihoods in the United States. Special time and attention are devoted to both mainstream and subcultural identities in this pluralist, secular, nation-state culture.

Prerequisite(s): None.
