I’m very excited to be working this coming school year with Maggie Morgan-Smith and Anna Agbie-Davies to teach an amazing course that focuses on diversity, social justice, and why ethnography is an important methodology for engaged scholars. The UNITAS curriculum has been around as a “Living Learning Community” at UNC-CH for quite a few years now, and has gone through its share of changes and growing pains. For now, it’s at home as a two-semester course in the anthropology department, with an optional residency component for students in a campus dorm. The course is open to undergraduate students at all levels, with the understanding that we are all always working to better understand how to take our theory into practice and our activism into the classroom.
