ANTHROPOLOGY OF THE SENSES

This course examines how humans make and understand the world through their senses, the history of the senses in Western and non-Western systems of thought and experience, and the contemporary meanings and uses of the senses in a range of socio-cultural contexts. Students explore the multidimensional nature of the senses through lectures, field-trips, experimentation and by working with practitioners in different disciplines.

Format: Three seminar hours
