Ethnozoology (ANT 355)
This course is a cross-cultural examination of the various roles that animals play in the lives of people. Emphasis will be placed on how animals are used in the construction of ethnic identities and how some are seen as sacred beings. The method and theory of zooarchaeology, the analysis of animal remains from archaeological sites, will be covered as a means of understanding the treatment of animals by past cultures. Depictions of animals in art and folklore will be used to examine their roles in more contemporary cultures.
