Clusters – Designing Your Anthropology Major
Memory and History
Anthropologists look deeply through time even as we look broadly across cultures and places. Many of our courses investigate the ways that the past can live in the present, as well as different ways of "telling time" and making meaning from memories and histories. In a literal sense, archaeology — one of the sub-branches of anthropology — explores the material traces of the past, while our core course on the history of anthropological thought shows the study of cultures, societies, and human life to be a conversation long unfolding, one woven into global histories and politics, and to which we might contribute our voices.
