Applied Evolutionary Anthropology
This graduate discussion-based course explores the relevance of evolutionary anthropology to contemporary efforts to improve human wellbeing, particularly in low and middle-income countries. It also provides an opportunity to consider the potential policy implications and ‘broader impacts’ of your own current/planned research – often a requirement for grant applications. In the 2020/21 academic year, this course will be arranged around the theme of understanding and dismantling patriarchy.
Behavioral Ecology of the Family
In this course we utilize behavioral ecology as a theoretical framework to examine family relationships and global diversity in family structure. We will apply theoretical concepts such as life history theory, sexual selection and kin selection to different aspects of family life. Taking a broad comparative perspective, we also consider the application of behavioral ecology to non-human families.
International Development and Population Health
This course considers the distribution and determinants of wellbeing in human populations, with an emphasis on low-income nations and the actions of the international development sector. Focus is placed on cultural/social determinants of health, including issues of gender equality. We will take a critical perspective on the tools used to measure population health and the design and evaluation of development policy and interventions.
