Uploaded a Course Syllabus
This course is a introduction to museum anthropology, something that will greatly benefit students in our Museum Training concentration. Such a course is necessary to provide the academic context in which museums and anthropology articulate. While currently we have several courses in the curriculum that explore museum methods and the utilization of collections, none provides an overview of the long history of entanglements of museums and anthropology.
