We have designed this learning community to introduce students to the variety of cultural systems throughout the world, with particular emphasis on women's contributions to these systems as well as on the influence of gender norms within these systems. Particular attention will be paid to the role that creativity and artistic endeavor plays in shaping a given culture and how historically, women have had a unique relationship to this phenomenon. This tandem will also look at the topic of migration and immigration, with particular attention to the effects the movement of people has on indigenous populations. Section 0H1 is an Honors course in tandem with ANT 202-0H1.

Section 003 is a Late-Start beginning 9/22
Section 050 is a Late-Start beginning 8/31
