FIRST ANNUAL ANTHROPOLOGY STUDENT CONFERENCE, APRIL 25, 2013
Anthropology students present their research. Pizza and soda.
Guerreri Student Center Pocamoke Room, Thursday, April 25,
2013 ANTHROPOLOGY COURSE
course introduces students to the rich archaeological legacy of
Europe, from Neanderthals and Paleolithic cave paintings through
prehistoric ritual sites such as Stonehenge to the ruins of the
Classical and Medieval epochs. The deep roots of the European
past laid the foundation for its later history and continue to
resonate in ethnic and cultural identities today. (Ragan)
ANTH 200-001/HIST 215-003:
Memory & History
How do societies remember, forget, and commemorate the past? How
is history “made”? In this course, we will examine the ways in
which the past has been approached by historians,
anthropologists, and the public through a series of case studies
and media sources from around the globe. We will explore the
nature of collective memory as a value-laden process in which
multiple stories about the past contend and struggle for
recognition, for moral judgment, and for emotional impact.
ANTH 201-151: Cultural Anthropology Survey
Cultures of Southeast Asia
Using short stories, films, and
ethnographies, this course introduces students to the cultural
complexity in modern Southeast Asia. The course surveys this
vital region's tremendous cultural diversity as it addresses the
effects of colonialism, the Cold War, and globalization. (Dwyer)
Topic: Black Music: Soundscapes of Diaspora, Race, & Resistance
This course will explore African-oriented musical traditions
through the past four centuries in the diasporic historical and
cultural contexts of creation—exploring popular music from both
sides of the Atlantic, the U.S., and the Caribbean, touching
upon concepts such as race, enslavement, and resistance. This
course will come right up to the present—through spirituals and
the blues, jazz, music of the Civil Rights era and politically
salient diasporic musicians such as Bob Marley and Fela Kuti and
through to Samba, Reggae, and Hip Hop.
