ANR 286 Families in Five Cultures
(cross-listed with ENG 286)
Drawing insights from anthropology and literature, students gain perspective on their own lives by exploring what it is like to grow up in different cultures, e.g. Chinese, African and Native American. These are compared to contemporary American families; they include stories of birth, childhood, love, married life, and old age. Class discussion and analysis explore the values of each culture. Students do a research study and have weekly tutorials with instructors to develop it.
