Cross-cultural examination of the form, function, meaning, and use of material culture (such as ceramics or stone tools) and the behavior patterns involved in its production. Topic vary by semester. Consult the Schedule of Classes for more details.
Sample learning outcomes from an instance where the topic was stone tools: 1) Students will explore and learn the techniques and theories associated with the analysis of chipped stone. 2) Students will investigate specific methodologies used to interpret behavior from stone artifact analysis. 3) Students will critically assess some of the past and present debates surrounding the analysis of stone artifacts. 4) To further student’s professional preparations students will actively engage in the analysis of a subset of stone artifacts to determine the unique nature of these types of datasets.

Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
CCAS - GCR:Social & Behavioral
This course covers various areas of technology and for years, the specific area of technology (e.g., ceramics) was shown in the schedule of classes. In 2012, we were told that to continue this practice, we needed to modify the course in Banner so that it said the topic varied (see course description above). Now we are told that, in addition, we must classify the course as a special topics lecture. That is the purpose of this form.
April 7: New syllabus attached with requisite boilerplate.
