The Spring semester has begun, and I'm finally attending class at Arizona State University.
I'm taking ASB 311, Principles of Social Anthropology, from Dr. John Martin. It was pretty cool to be back on the ASU campus after all these years! I was amazed at how much looked exactly the same as when I attended there in the early 1980s. I felt a bit out of place in the classroom with 40 other students, all of them appearing to be less than 22 years old.
We're going to begin by studying the Dobe Ju/'Hoansi, and follow that with in depth looks at three other cultures.
