ANTH 2020 Visual Languages Across Cultures
Visual Languages Across Cultures
Most research on language takes speech as the main domain of investigation. However, humans use not only speech but also meaningful hand movements called 'gestures' when they communicate. Furthermore,there are many communities where the speech is absent in linguistic communication. For example, deaf communities across the world use sign languages that are produced and perceived only in the visual-spatial modality. This course aims to give n interdisciplinary and state of the art overview of the role of the body in the structuring and functioning of the human language faculty. The course will present cross-cultural and cross-linguistic findings from these new fields relating them to discussions of embodied cognition and semantics, situated use of language, the link between language and action and their neural correlates. This course fullfills the departmental goal of providing its students with the knowledge of appreciation for the cultural and linguistic diversity of humanity.

ANTH 3441 Lexicography: Dictionaries and How to Make Them
Lexicography: Dictionaries and How to Make Them
Lexicography is the making of dictionaries. Dictionaries take many forms and fulfill many functions.

Dictionaries may be monolingual, di-, tri-, or multi-lingual, etymological or encyclopedic, synchronic or diachronic, prescriptive or descriptive, terminological or generic. Dictionary construction requires a number of skills which co-vary with the type of dictionary to be produced.

Mummies can be investigated from various perspectives (textual, iconographic, biomedical, ethnographical, archaeological), but are studied most effectively using a multidisciplinary approach involving archaeologists, biological anthropologists, conservators, and specialists in medical imaging, paleogenetics and geochemistry.

ANTH 4510 Species and Species Concepts in Human Paleontology
Species and Species Concepts in Human Paleontology
The number of proposed fossil hominid/hominin species has mushroomed in recent years yet the recognition of species in the human fossil record remains a daunting task. However, in order to reconstruct the phylogenetic (ancestor-descendent) relationships among humans, our ancestors, and close collateral relatives, we must group hominin fossils into meaningful taxonomic categories, ones that likely reflect truly monophyletic (shared common ancestor) descent patterns. This course explores different evolutionary species concepts and their applicability to human paleontology. Current approaches to the reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships are then discussed, and the taxonomic status of hominin species is assessed.
Notes: This course can be taken to fulfill the capstone requirement.

ANTH 6020 The Neandertal Enigma
The Neandertal Enigma
The Neandertals are the best-understood group of non-modern fossil hominids, having been known to science since 1856. Yet even today they inspire many provocative questions. Who were the Neandertals? How were they different from us? Did they have language? How and why did they disappear? Were they our ancestors, or did our ancestors out compete them? And if the Neandertals were not our ancestors, then who were? These are some of the questions we will explore in this class on the classic cavemen"."

Ethnography of Performance and Identity in New Orleans and French Louisiana
This course focuses on symbolic meaning in the vernacular expressive culture or folkloric forms of community groups in New Orleans, French Louisiana, the Gulf South region and selected out migrant locations. It addresses differential identities of tribal, ethnic, regional, religious, linguistic, occupational, class and gender affiliations--and examines aesthetic forms as a primary means to do so. Some of these are largely intangible such as music and dance, ritual and festival, narrative and jokes; others are tangible or material culture to varying degrees such as the built environment (houses, boats, landscape use), crafts, costumes and cuisine. All are examined via ethnographic and historical writing, oral histories and documentary media as to how shared cultural knowledge is performed in an array of contexts. These include dancehalls, Carnival parades, second lines, work settings, festivals, neighborhood museums, sacred spaces and so on.
