DESCRIPTION OF FACULTY/DEPARTMENT/SCHOOL

Anthropology 1034 WA — World Cultures (Winter 2021)

Anthropology is the study of the biological and cultural complexity of human beings, both past and present. Socio-cultural anthropologists are interested in how societies and cultures function – how people in different locations adapt to their environment, the countless symbolic systems they use to communicate with each other, the political and religious institutions that give meaning to their lives, the modes families are structured, and the forms they make a living. This course is intended to introduce students to the anthropological study of cultural diversity, involving ways of comparing and contrasting the structures of social relationships and belief systems that function in different cultural settings. A series of examples will be derived from the past and present social organization of Indigenous peoples and western cultures. This involves the development of culture and traditional practices, relationship between people and the land, linguistic variations, impacts of colonialism and peoples' capacity to self-determine their identities and future. Students will learn about the fascinating array of customs and traditions that constitute Indigenous peoples past and modern cultures from Canada and around the world.

Anthropology 2515 FA – Key Concepts in Ethnology (Fall 2020)

The meaning and purposes underlying the study of different cultures has changed considerably since the origins of the discipline from the end of the nineteenth century until the current days. Economic interests, political agendas, ethics, Indigenous political movements and intellectual commitments have informed distinct views of the focus of study in Socio-cultural Anthropology. This course is intended to present the development of anthropology, its theories and core concepts that have informed anthropological research. The methods employed are aimed at understanding Indigenous societies in the past and present as well as global practices. Cultural anthropologists by their very training are expected to understand culturally appropriate ways of engaging communities especially minorities, oppressed groups and Indigenous peoples. Understanding these concepts enable students to better comprehend the past, present and future societies.

Anthropology / Biology 3138 FA – Introduction to DNA Molecular Methods (Fall 2020)

An introduction to methods used in molecular biology, biochemistry and molecular anthropology with emphasis on the techniques and their application.

Methods of DNA data analysis and interpretation are also introduced, including forensic science, molecular anthropology, molecular biology and molecular archaeology.

Anthropology 3719 WDE – Anthropology of Violence & War – ONLINE COURSE (Winter 2021)

Conflict exists everywhere, even in the smallest societies. In some cases, violence and war are the result. This course combines rich empirical descriptions of violence and war with a comprehensive theoretical discussion of the foundation of these extreme forms of behaviour.
