An Introduction to Anthropology

Summer 2015 


Human language and symbolic culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years
ago, in a momentous and revolutionary upheaval whose echoes can still be heard
in myths, fairy tales and ritual traditions from around the world.
Topics this term range from the history of the family,
through archaeoastronomy, climate science and mythology to the politics of sex
and gender. In addition to lectures and workshops, the term
features spectacular live shows by two of Britain's most celebrated performance
artists, Marcus Coates (May 19) and Marisa Carnesky (June 23).
