ANTH 150 - (BH,CC) Pre- and Non-Industrial Technology, Economies and Material Culture

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Colonialization and the industrial revolution have affected the world technologically, economically, socially and environmentally. Modernization and globalization continue to change the world. Developing an appreciation for pre- and non-industrial technologies, economies, and material culture is imperative for understanding how native cultural frameworks impact the creation, incorporation, use, and disposal of products and services. Using a variety of case studies and anthropological approaches, the course will address topics including: indigenous knowledge and resource management; cross-cultural perspectives on identity, gender, age, religion, symbolism, language, and politics; approaches to problem solving and conflict management; and alternative forms of currency and economic systems.
