ANTH 020 PZ -Human Histories:Onset to 1500ish


Institution: Pitzer

Description: HUMAN HISTORIES: ONSET TO 1500ish.  This course examines human histories from the onset of human existence up to 1500ish. Topics include: the distinctiveness of humans as a species, and evidence for this over the course of the late Paleolithic; histories of agriculture and of major food crops and their movements over time; environmental impacts of diverse human settlements; social inequalities and state formations, and resistance to both; world religious traditions; and cultural differentiation. The course is global in perspective by virtue of (a) its attention to connections, or flows, between dispersed geographic sites, and (b) its use of cross-cultural comparisons.  Fundamental to the course is a rejection of the distinction between humans without history and humans with history.
