ANTH 180B — Playing Human: Persons, Objects, Imagination

[ ss ]

Examines how people interact with material artifacts that are decidedly not human and yet which, paradoxically, deepen and extend experiences of being human. Theories of fetishism; masking and ritual objects across cultures; play and childhood experience; and objects of imagination, memory and trauma. Special one-time offering spring 2012.
