Biological Anthropology (3) This course provides a survey of biocultural research approaches used in studies of historic human skeletal samples and contemporary health and disease studies of living populations. Class readings, lectures, and discussions focus on the biological consequences of poverty and inequality. Osteology laboratories and field trips are used to enhance students' understanding of the relationship between socioeconomic status, differential access to resources, and biological well-being. Course materials illustrating the use of the race concept by nineteenth and twentieth century scientists and medical professionals provide historical context for the development of the biocultural synthesis.

Ancient Cultures of Mexico and Central America (3) This course surveys the development of Mesoamerican societies using archaeological evidence from the earliest hunter-gatherers in the Paleoindian period through the various cultures (Olmec, Maya, Aztec, and others) that thrived before the arrival of Europeans in the sixteenth century. A key focus is shared cultural practices that make the archaeology of this region a coherent field of study, including writing systems, mathematics and calendrical systems, and a cyclical cosmological worldview. The course also explores a number of key issues within archaeological research that affect a person's experience of daily life in the past, such as social stratification, craft production and trade, the development of urban living, and different visual representations of art and religion. The course culminates in a Mesoamerican feast to illustrate the enduring effect these ancient cultural traditions have on our modern lives.

Ideology and Politics (3) This course focuses on two key and very much overlapping areas of relatively recent archaeological concern: ideology, as it is typically understood through political-economic perspectives; and the politics of archaeological research, its questions, its methods, and its articulations with contemporary society and publics. In order to fully explore these areas of thoughts, the course delves into Marxian thought, critical archaeology, Existentialism, and an array of relatively recent archaeological writings.

Carceral States and the Politics of Abolition (3) This course delves into different theories of the state in order to examine how the maintenance of state power relies on the capture, enclosure, exploitation and elimination of targeted geographies and populations. The framework for the course productively disrupts the dominant discourse that reduces policing and incarceration to their professionalized and bureaucratized articulation in institutions of criminal justice. In lieu of this approach, the course explores policing and incarceration as fundamental logics of modern social order. Accordingly, it examines how various kinds of racialized and gendered carceral spaces--settler colonies, slave ships, plantations, households, factories, prisons, ghettos--have been and remain essential to the political economic development of modern states. Conversely, how human communities targeted by policing and incarceration have challenged their subjection through various methodologies of resistance is also explored. To understand these methodologies of resistance, the course draws on the theoretical and political insights provided by the concept of prison abolition.
