Lakehead University, Thunder Bay Campus, invites applications for a Contract Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology. Applications are requested to teach:

Anthropology 1034 FDE - World Cultures - ZOOM
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 2517 WA - Exploring Ethnography
Ethnography, as the hallmark method and product of sociocultural anthropology, combines the theories and practices of the discipline. Students will engage in selected ethnographies to explore topics such as culture, fieldwork, and the representations of the Other and the Self.

Anthropology 3138 FDE & Lab - Introduction to DNA Molecular Methods - ZOOM
An introduction to methods used in molecular biology, biochemistry and molecular anthropology with emphasis on the techniques and their application. The laboratory component covers the analysis of nucleic acids particularly DNA, and includes basic techniques such as gel electrophoresis, DNA extraction, and the polymerase chain reaction. 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 and War - Online
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.
