ANT 211 Lifestyles and Outlooks

Prerequisite: Eligibility for ENG 101  
3 credits

American culture has always been a patchwork of different realities. Once derived from Old World ethnic entities, todays proliferating subcultures are based as well on age, religious beliefs, occupation, class and ideology. From cults to street gangs, from bag ladies to urban terrorists, all represent particular views of life. The course explores each of these and also considers ways in which such groupings contribute to or alter the nature of American culture and strengthen or weaken the social bond. Not offered every year.
