ANSO 103-01, Introduction to Anthropology, Spring 2002
We enter the world with the marvelous capacity to live any one of a thousand different kinds of lives, as the anthropologist, Geertz, says. Nevertheless once we begin to live that life that is to become ours, we often live it with the amazing conviction that it is the best and possibly only way to live. Those other lives that could possibly have been ours are also lived with equal conviction. Many of those thousand different kinds of lives are lived next door when society sees "race"1, gender, a
ANSO 341-01, Peoples of (Sub-Saharan) Africa, Spring 2002
Section I -- in this section we will try to gain a general understanding of African geography, prehistory, history and culture.Section II -- anthropologists are not only ethnographers, but they are also ethnologists, posing and attempting to answer theoretical questions. In this section we will explore some of the classical theoretical questions that have been posed (primarily by British and French anthropologists) in reference to African historical and ethnographic data.,This syllabus was submi
ANSO 331-01, Prejudice and the Human Condition, Spring 2001
This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.,Course Statement This is not a course in the sociology of racial or ethnic prejudice - it is a seminar that examines the implications of social and ontological foregrounding for interpretive experience, self understanding and interaction. We will orient our study within the phenomenological tradition and follow the development of Continental hermeneutics through the work of Gadamer. Our goal i
ANSO 208-01, Pyramids and Palaces: Archaeology of "Complex' Societies, Fall 2002
This course is intended to be an introduction to the methods and theories of anthropological archaeology. This course will also explore current explanations and available data on two classic problem foci of archaeology: the origins of plant and animal domestication and settled life in the Old and the New World, and the origins of early states and urban centers in such areas of the world as Egypt, Mesopotamia, Mesoamerica and South America.,This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office
ANSO 300-02, Cultural Motifs: Aging and the Human Condition, Fall 1998
This seminar examines the phenomenon of aging in order to demystify its various dimensions. Our objective is to clear a rare discursive space in which to study and discuss topics most of us are encouraged not to talk about. We will clear such a space nonetheless, and we will examine the good, the bad and the ugly dimensions of aging in order to locate the significance of aging for our personal and collective life journeys.,This syllabus was submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs by the cour

Seismology in the Classroom
Students learn about seismology by using a sample seismograph constructed out of common classroom materials. The seismograph creates a seismogram based on vibrations caused by moving a ruler. The students work in groups to represent an engineering firm that must analyze the seismograph for how it works and how to read the seismogram it creates.
