SOSC 301 - Material Culture (LS)
This lecture/seminar course introduces students to the analysis of material culture. The social processes and techniques involved in the creation of objects will be studied in a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary framework, together with the interrelationship between objects and their socio-cultural contexts. Students will learn to analyze the socio-cultural place of the object through a variety of critical and disciplinary perspectives as they are applied to a broad range of examples and case studies according to selected themes.
Any 200-level ENGL or SOSC plus completion of First Year Studies.
