This course introduces students to the topics and themes of contemporary anthropology. We explore such areas as religion, gender, politics, media, and family in different societies in order to develop an appreciation of cultural diversity in a global world. For the fall 2015 voyage, the class also investigates how similar the practice of anthropology might be to the kind of educational tourism that takes place during Semester at Sea.
