Organization of Societies
Intensive in-class discussions of accounts from several societies, past and present. Discussions address key issues in cultural analysis (e.g., status, kinship, gender and identity, symbolism) by means of cross-cultural comparison and a holistic examination of culture. Students are encouraged to think critically and interpretively about the organization and cultural practices of the societies under review.
