Introduction to Anthropology Current Lecture About the Professor: Dr. Libby Cowgill Paleoanthropologist, graduated with her Ph.D in 2008. She researches Neanderthals and early humans. Her office is at 213C Swallow Hall and office hours are made by appointment. Syllabus and Class Information: The lecture and the lab are not connected and will not always evenly overlap. Students taking the lab should not ask the professor about lab information as she is not involved with the lab section. There will be three exams based on the lectures. There will be an in-class review/discussion during the class before the exam. While attendance will not be taken, attending classes is highly recommended as there are several studies which show the correlation between attending class and getting a good grade. There will be no questions asked directly from the text book, but it is recommended to read the text book for additional information on lecture topics. Introduction to Anthropology Anthropology: The study of humans and our primate relatives and ancestors There are four major divisions of Anthropology; Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, and Archaeology. These notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture. GradeBuddy is best used as a supplement to your own notes, not as a substitute.
