Anthropology 3739 Anthropology of Art
Cross-cultural and diachronic consideration of art and art-making in human societies. The arts of hunter-gatherers, simple farmers, and complex societies – today and in the past – are examined in comparative perspective. The ethnography and archaeology of visual arts, music, dance, and body art are brought to bear on the question: is art a human universal?
