Delineation and analysis of a specific problem or related problems in anthropology. Offered occasionally by visitors or resident faculty.
Anth 469C, Ethics and Community-Based Participatory Methods, is the first course in a three-course sequence. As the name implies the course focuses on the ethics of our interactions with communities. Students are required to participate in service-learning at a public school so each student has a community to engage with during the year. In the second course, students will undertake participatory research with the community. In the third course, students will design and implement a community education project of interest to the community. A year-long service-learning option will ensure we provide more sustainable, long-term assistance to communities while students simultaneously learn from their experiences. All three classes focus on Pacific Islander and Asian communities in the Seattle area, and will include collaboration with the Burke Museum and the Pipeline program.
