ANTH 102 PZ - Museums and Material Culture


Material culture consists of artifacts that represent the behaviors of humans who create, utilize, value, and discard things in culturally significant ways. This course will investigate the cultural and individual meanings of objects from several different groups. A major section of the course will focus on museums: how they present cultural materials (and possibly misrepresent). In required lab section meetings throughout the semester, students will cooperate to design and mount an exhibition of early American material culture.

Instructor: S. Miller
Course Credit: 1.0
