ANTH 63 Biocultural Dimension of Child Development

What is childhood? Is it a social construct of a distinct biological stage in human development? This course explores cross-cultural patterns of child development using the theoretical frameworks of human evolutionary ecology and biocultural anthropology. Students will learn how nutritional, epidemiologic, and social conditions shape developmental processes in infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Students will also analyze children's roles and economics contributions in a cross-cultural context, and examine contemporary global patterns of child health and disease.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
