After School Program
Culture, Language and Society in the 21st Century - Science Research Course
January 13, 2016 - March 2, 2016
Culture is everywhere: The language you speak, the food you eat, the expectations of how you should behave. Culture determines how each of us understands the world around us, how we relate to others, and how others relate to us. In this course, we will explore the science of culture as you develop the skills anthropologists use to study cultural differences in health, gender, economics, religion, and communication to better understand humankind, with particular focus on issues of social inequality, representation, and studying the culture of the Museum itself.
This course is a pre-requisite for the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) in the Life Sciences track.
