ANG 6930 Humans and Animals

Dr. DeFrance

Humans and Animals examines the complex and multiple relationship that people have with animals using the lens of anthropology.  Throughout human history we have developed social, economic, and symbolic connections with animals.  In addition to insights from cultural anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology, this course draws on research from multiple other disciplines to explore our unique interdependences with other animals.
