Dr. Pete Collings

T 5th and 6th periods

R 6th period

General Anthropology is an introduction to the discipline of Anthropology, which studies humanity by taking a holistic, unified perspective on the human condition. How do humans adapt to their environments through their symbols, their material objects, and their bodies? How have these adaptations changed through history? There are many diverse answers to these question, which we explore by looking at contemporary human societies in all of their social and biological dimensions. We also look at the long-term processes and conditions –including globalization –that have created this diversity.
