This course is an undergraduate introductory cultural anthropology course designed to acquaint students with major concepts of anthropology and cross-cultural work. It introduces students to well- known names in anthropological theory, and a variety of research methods for collecting ethnographic data. The course is centered around the Ethnographic Project, which involves several sub-projects through which each student is to carry out first person research in a cross-cultural context. On campus students should find a context within the Dallas-Fort Worth area. SL students should find a context near where they are residing. Students should NOT attempt to carry this project out via reflection on past experiences, over a phone, or via a computer app. Students may discuss this with the professor. This research will employ multiple methodologies and involve at least six visits outside class hours, culminating in a core values paper and in-class presentation.
