End of the Semester – GREAT CLASS!

I can’t believe it’s over yet it truly is! The Cultural Anthropology – ANTH 2200 course is over. I submitted my grades last week and now finishing up with all the fall semester activities.

Throughout this fall semester and particularly at the end, my Cultural Anthropology class was another great class filled with all types of phenomenal, engaging and laid-back students who shared their opinions on various class topics and class exercises. In fact, we talked about politics, race and ethnicity, language and the use of slang terms, student groupings, and of course CULTURE!

All in all, I had another enjoyable time with my Cultural Anthropology class and I hope that they enjoyed how I taught this course because it’s different than other Cultural Anthropology courses! Now that they have survived my Cultural Anthropology course, I considered them officially GRADUATES of Dr. Bailey’s Cultural Anthropology course! Now they are ready for the WORLD!

Check out a few photos from the last day!

Cultural Anthropology Class – Fall 2016

WE ARE BACK!!

It’s the beginning of another academic year here at East Carolina University and I am delighted to get the semester started. One of the classes that I teach during the fall semester is an undergraduate course – Cultural Anthropology. On the very first day of class, the large lecture hall (Rm 265) was filled to capacity. This was the FIRST time that this lecture hall was filled to capacity for my Cultural Anthropology course. Quite naturally, I LIKED IT – the bigger, the better!

The major objectives of my Cultural Anthropology class are: 1. To provide a comprehensive introduction to the discipline of Cultural Anthropology – its fundamental principles and key concepts; 2. To encourage awareness of cultural and human diversity; 3. To help all students make sense of our increasingly interconnected world and to find their particular place in it; and 4. To help students to find out how they can make a difference in our local and global communities.

What I REALLY try to emphasize in this Cultural Anthropology class is for ALL my students to take more of an effort in gaining a “Cultural Relativistic” perspective of other people and their culture as well as to discover how Cultural Anthropology can help their major AND become more employable when they graduate from ECU.

Yet, I was caught by a big surprise during the first week of the semester. I became very sick suddenly and was hospitalized for dehydration during the first week. I therefore had to miss a couple of days. Fortunately, I recovered quickly because of the great treatment from my primary physician and the medical professionals at Vidant Health hospital.

So what a way to START THE SEMESTER!!

I want to thank my Cultural Anthropology class for their patience and understanding and NOW we are Officially BACK in stride lecturing about Cultural Anthropology.

Here are few photos of my Cultural Anthropology students as well as a few Selfies!
