Summer 2017 Courses: Intro to Anthro and Medical Anthropology


Once again, Anth 424: Medical Anthropology had a large waiting list this year so I decided to offer it online this summer.  And when offering an advanced course, why not offer the intro as well?  Check availability at WWU Class Finder and register early since these tend to fill up quickly.
