ANTH 288 - Childhood


Credits: 3
Planned Offering: Fall 2012 and alternate years.

This course explores the experience of childhood cross-culturally. It investigates how different societies conceptualize children, and our readings will progress through representations of the life cycle. Beginning with the topic of conception, the course moves through issues pertaining to the fetus, infants, children, and adolescents. Discussions of socialization, discipline, emotion, education, gender, and sexuality are included and special attention is given to the effects of war, poverty, social inequality, and disease on children and youth.
