ANTH 365 - Death and Dying

(4)
Everybody dies. Not everybody manages death the same way. The class takes a cross-cultural look at the ways people die and cope with death around the world, by reading a variety of classic and contemporary literature on death, and by taking field trips to graveyards and funeral homes. The course offers opportunities to learn about other societies as a platform for exploring mortality more generally. Spring.
