ANTH 328 - Body and Identity

Units: 3
Explores the social construction and performances of the body and identity through a cross-cultural look at definitions and meanings of the body, codes inscribed on it by our everyday practices (wearing makeup, working out), and choices of decorative markers (clothing, jewelry, tattoos, piercings). How are gender, race, ethnicity, and power status signaled by the body? How is rebellion enacted through the body? Anthropological perspectives are used to explore how people approach these issues across cultural, economic, political, social, and religious contexts. Cross-listed: ANTH 328 and WGSS 328 . Students may not receive credit for both. May not be taken for credit by students who have received credit for ID 370 -2 and WGSS 300 -6.
