ANTH 3700 - Emotions in the Social and Cultural Contexts


(3) Credit Hours

Emotion is not only an integral part of human life, it is also, human life itself.  Even though the abilities of having and expressing emotions are biologically based, the specific ways we experience and express emotions are however socially and culturally constructed and shaped. This proposed course, relying on the use of anthropological/sociological/psychological literature on the study of emotions from both western and non-western societies intends to provide students with cross-cultural and comparative approaches in examining and illustrating the social and cultural forces in shaping and regulating the personality, the meanings and practices of emotion expressions, and how these practices play a role contributing to human, family, and social relations and population health.
