Global in its scope and comparative in its analysis, social and cultural anthropology is ideally equipped to explore the diversity of human social life and the variety of cultural understandings that emerge from it. This course introduces the discipline of socio-cultural anthropology, the peoples and places with whom anthropologists work, and key themes in the study of society and culture. Crucially, it also explores fundamental questions about cultural diversity, and provides the intellectual tools for making sense of the diverse, interconnected world in which we live.
