ANTH 3240 - Culture and the Body

5 credit hours
This course examines the ways in which diverse cultures represent, customize, and conceptualize the physical and social body. The question that we must ask, and try to answer, is what does the body tell us about culture? We will compare the different ways in which cultures construct the “naturalness” of the body through “normality” and “abnormality”, power, healing, and suffering.
