Criteri di valutazione:
Contenuti: Anthropology, the study of humanity past and present, has in Italy four main subdivisions:
a) Physical Anthropology: The study of the human physical variation; b) Ethnology: The crosscultural study of today's societies; c) Cultural Anthropology: The study of cultural variation among humans; and, d) Social anthropology: The study on how contemporary human beings behave in social groups.
From these viewpoints, the discipline brings together studies of peoples into a meaningful whole. Because of this orientation, anthropology is steadily growing in importance in education, industry, business, and national and international government, as well as in politics. The course is devoted to a better understanding of the human experience from an anthropological perspective. It offers a holistic approach; it pursues an understanding of persons, their lives and experience, based on the knowledge of society and culture, of biology and psychology, that have been developed within anthropology. It offers students the opportunity to explore how human and nonhuman social behavior and psychology are shaped by interlocking processes of natural and sexual selection, social transmission, and individual learning. Emphasis is upon the interrelations of biological,
psychological, and socio-cultural forces at different points in the life cycle
Attivita' di apprendimento previste e metodologie di insegnamento: Mainly lectures. Any additional material (videos, pictures, artifacts or books) that would help the students understand and personalize the information will be furnished. Whenever possible, field trips to museums or local cultural centers will be organized.
Eventuali indicazioni sui materiali di studio: Because anthropology includes a variety of topics, terms and names students may not be familiar with, copies of the different power point presentations will be furnished, together with glossaries, with the aim to assist the students’ retention of the material covered. On line sites of interest will be suggested as well.
