ENST 3308 V21 - Catastrophe and Human Survival
Summer Session II, July 5 - August 4
Online: TTh, 01:00PM - 04:00PM

Pandemics, climate change, war, and resulting political and economic crises preoccupy narratives about human survival. As a result, our lives, societies, and political systems seem increasingly unstable and precarious—our futures, uncertain. Examining past natural disasters and pandemics, and how future threats therefore become imagined, this course explores the relationship between thinking about future disasters, and how humans seek to protect themselves from significant danger. Drawing on an interdisciplinary literature from critical and political theory, security studies, other social sciences, and the humanities, this course surrounds the phenomena of future catastrophe and human survival to ask: What does it mean to live in an age of extreme turbulence? Note: Four-credit courses that meet for 150 minutes per week require three additional hours of class preparation per week on the part of the student in lieu of an additional hour of formal instruction.

ANTH 2700 V11 - You Are What You Eat
Summer Session I, May 31 - June 30, 2022
Online: MTWTh, 09:00AM - 12:00PM

As the center of all significant human rituals and ceremonies, food is studied by a range of natural and social scientists. For the anthropologist, food is connected to the human body, health social relations, identity, and even ideology; we are literally what we eat. This course examines the role food plays in shaping cultural practices throughout the world. Students will explore changing concepts of food through time, beginning with early humans, modes of food production, and consumption. Through primary literature, lectures, local ethnic markets, and sharing meals throughout the semester, this class will immerse you in the theoretical and empirical significance of the cross-cultural significance of food. Bon Appetit!
