The course is an introduction to the comparative study of cultural systems. During the fall semester, we will do so by watching some films and discussing the anthropological links. Emphasis will be on the research methods, concepts, and theories which apply to an understanding of the worldwide diversity of human behavior in all major aspects of culture, including economics, social organization, politics and legal systems, language, subsistence strategies, social stratification, gender roles, art, and belief in the supernatural. Culture change will also be addressed.
Students in this class may also enroll in the teacher’s online college class at Ventura Community College and earn college credit simultaneously in the spring semester.
