Designed as a practicum, this course will introduce students to research and practice in museum anthropology, utilizing our extensive anthropology collections in the CU Museum of Natural History. Students will conduct subject matter and collections research, engage in collaborative methods, and produce narrative stories for exhibit content development. Class time will be spent listening to mini-lectures about contemporary practice and techniques, working with collections items and associated records, providing project status reports, collaborating with team members, and troubleshooting. Students will also create a public display of the outcomes of their research.
