ANT 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Indigenous Health & Human Biology

4 credits (Fall)
This class explores issues related to health, morbidity, and biology in traditional human communities as well as global health, infectious diseases, maternal and infant health, chronic violence, and political ecology. We will discuss the role of diet and physical activity on overall human health and fitness, examine the impact on human health and biology of the advent of plant and animal domesticates relative to wild resources, and how anthropologists use biological evidence of poor health to assess the success of cultural adaptations.

Prerequisite: ANT 104 .
