Survey of visual anthropology including theoretical frameworks of ways of seeing, ethnographic photography and filmmaking, contemporary technologies, and their effects on culture.
The Department of Anthropology has identified this course as being one of the best 500-level cultural anthropology courses to fulfill the Carolina Core Globalization and Multicultural Understanding - Social Science Integrative course for anthropology majors. Right now we only have one culture and globalization course at the 500-level that fulfills this integrative role on the books and we need to place a few more as fulfill this requirement. This course has always followed the integrative model and so we are merely formalizing this course as fulfilling this requirement.
This did not need to go through the Carolina Core Committee and should be approved as an Integrative course integrating GHS for the Anthropology major. It should be a consent item for the C&C committee.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
The committee did note that the disability statement is missing from the syllabus, and this is a required element. Please make sure it is included on the syllabus when the course is offered. The Center for Teaching Excellence provides useful information and example syllabi statements related to academic integrity, attendance policy, and disability services (see https://sc.edu/about/offices_and_divisions/cte/teaching_resources/coursedevelopment/example_syllabus_statements/). Also, the graduate student requirement is to read three additional books from the list below (there are only two books listed).
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
