Teaching Materials

A sample of teaching material from diverse courses at the University of Calgary between 2010-2013:

ANTH 203 Syllabus (Spring 2013) FINAL

This course offers a general introduction to social and cultural anthropology, from the emergence of the human sciences to the discipline’s contemporary forms. Concepts and theories at the heart of anthropology will be addressed in order to frame an exploration of common methodological tools used in the generation of ethnographic knowledge. Material covered will include spirituality, health practices, language, kinship, economic systems, and political structures from throughout the world. Special emphasis is put on applying anthropological perspectives to dynamics of social change and development in a globalized world.
