Class meets in Hamilton 208. Human Osteology This course provides students with basic understanding of the human skeleton through lectures, field trips, and hands-on experience. Students learn how to identify skeletal elements from whole and fragmentary pieces of bone, and how to construct a biological profile of skeletal individuals through estimations of age-at-death, sex, population ancestry, stature, and pathological conditions. Additionally, students are introduced to literature addressing theoretical and ethical issues pertaining to the study and analysis of human remains.

Community, Anthropology and Heritage In this course, students explore studies that include working with communities to preserve and manage the cultural heritage, collaborating with communities in nationally-initiated projects that ensure significant local control over decision-making, responding to initiatives taken by communities to develop heritage sites, and co-writing histories and developing joint research projects. The successes of community participation in other parts of the world are important to understand and include a broad range of intersection issues and themes, including research into indigenous knowledge systems, oral traditions, cosmological constructions, social memory and place, human rights, and issues of sustainability.

Class meets in the archaeology lab Hamilton 109. Artifact Analysis We live in a world of things, and archaeologists eventually must interpret the artifacts of our past. This hands-on course in the archaeology lab uses collections from two important archaeological sites. One site, from colonial Philadelphia, dates to the eighteenth through early nineteenth century, and the other site is a Native American site from the fourteenth century located along the Potomac River. The goal is to understand the process of analyzing artifacts, and how that leads to a deeper understanding of our collective past.

Oral History This course considers the basic theory and techniques of oral history as a qualitative method of collecting and preserving information about the past. Oral history takes many forms, including life history, biography, public history, and the collected narratives by people who experienced specific events and moments in history. The history of this field provides the foundation for the modern methodology. The course offers a hands-on approach to learning the systematic means of collecting, transcribing, editing, analyzing and interpreting data collected through in-depth interviews. Interpersonal relationships and issues of race, class, and gender in the interview process are discussed. Legal and ethical concerns are introduced in relation to conducting oral history interviews, publication of data, and repository regulations. Students conduct and transcribe an oral history as the final product for the course.

Multilingualism and Power Despite common political, institutional and media portrayals, most societies are multilingual. Multilingualism can be studied from a number of vantage points, including examining language varieties associated with a single language code, language acquisition and socialization of two or more language codes, dialogic connections that speakers and signers make between language codes, and the sociopolitical orders organizing and stratifying relationships between language usage groups. This course reviews interactive, ethnographic and discourse analytic approaches to the study of multilingual sites to develop insights into the ways that language usage reflects and responds to power, particularly in connection to language ideologies and social hierarchies.

Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Space Language practices are fundamental to the ways race, gender, and sexuality operate in societies. Space, or the ways that geographic worlds are imagined and discursively reproduced, often shows evidence of ideological investments in certain notions of race, gender, and sexuality. For example, the word "immigration" is about geographical movement, but within most contexts it is also heavily laden with issues of race or ethnicity, and national borders. Similarly, phrases like "a woman's place" is as much about the way certain spaces are imagined, as they are about the particular bodies meant to inhabit those spaces. This class surveys ethnographic and discursive approaches to the study of race, gender, and sexuality that use or rely on issues of space or space-making as their points of entry. In so doing, students develop critical insights into how analyses of discourse, text, and voice can lend themselves to deep consideration of the geographical (or spatial) dimensions of race, gender, and sexuality within various contexts.

Ethnographic Writing This seminar explores the craft, art, and politics of ethnographic writing through intensive ethnographic research, writing, and reading. Students conduct a semester-long ethnographic study and produce frequent writing assignments while dissecting exemplary ethnographic texts from anthropology and related disciplines, including sociology, investigative journalism, narrative nonfiction, fiction, radio, and film. The seminar is particularly interested in the importance of ethnography and its potential as a force for social change in the era of big data.
