Spring 2017 Special Topics Descriptions

ANSC 100. Special Topics in Sociocultural Anthropology

Language and Religion

Instructor: Jon Bialecki

Description: Religion is often associated with the ineffable, but that should not be taken as meaning that religion, like all other human social activity, is not deeply and possibly essentially concerned and made possible by language. By the same measure though, language’s ubiquity in human affairs should not be taken to mean that language concerning religion does not have particular and special features. This class explores religion as a linguistic anthropology problem, addressing issues such as the pragmatics and metapragmatics of prayer and other religious speech, how language operates in phenomena often associated with religion, such as divination or possession, and the use of religious language to mobilize social projects that may not be considered “religious.” While this class will deal with issues of linguistic anthropology, previous linguistic anthropology courses are not a prerequisite.

ANBI 100. Special Topics in Biological Anthropology

Evolution of Human Disease

Instructor: Pascal Gagneux, Ph.D. 

Description: The course will explore the major epidemiological transitions from ape-like ancestors to foraging tribes, farmers and pastoralists, to the global metropolitan primate we now are. We will focus on how diseases have shaped humans and how humans have shaped disease over time.
