Anthropology | Culture and Society
E105 | 1097 | Wilk


Have you ever wondered how and why people of other cultures and groups
act and think differently, and see the world in different ways?
Sociocultural and linguistic anthropology study human cultural
difference, and the universal aspects of the human experience that
bring all people together. The course challenges you with a wide
variety of films, readings, discussions, and short research
assignments, to help understand the kinds of cultural diversity you
face every day here in Indiana, and will encounter for the rest of
your life in our increasingly interconnected world. Our goal is to
open your eyes to the origin and value of cultures, in a way that will
be useful in almost any kind of major and career, from business to
musical performance. I use an unusual grading system in which you can
pick different combinations of tests and other work to get the grade
you want.
