This course will provide an anthropological perspective on the intersection between human biology and society, past and present. The course will focus on three central themes including: human genetic diversity and the increasing use of genetic information in society, “missing links” in human prehistory and the ethics of studying recent human skeletal material and human/environment interactions. Class lectures and discussions will develop around readings from scientific journals as well as popular writings about science presented in news publications and on the web. Grades will be based on exams, short writing assignments and participation in discussion sections. This course is open to students with varying degrees of scientific and biological familiarity but at least one college level biology or anthrbio class is helpful.
