ANT 255 - Interpreting Lives: Rites of Passage, Personal History, and the Life Cycle (Honors)


3 Credit Hours

Same as HIS 255  & PSY 255 . Honors courses involve more in-depth study than non-honors courses and often involve exploratory learning, essay writing, collaborative activities and individualized research. This interdisciplinary course considers the stages of life and their cross-cultural variation, including the rites of passage that mark transitions throughout the human life cycle. Further, the course examines how people construct and reaffirm their lives through the process of personal narrative. Students will be taught life history interview methods and guided to do independent research with an individual “tradition bearer”. Such life history research facilitates the coming to voice of women and minority people who are often ignored in standard historical writing.

Prerequisite(s): COM 121  or COM 122 , eligibility for the Honors Program

Semesters Offered: Fall
