Research Design for Social Ecology (SocEcol 10)
Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (Anthro 2A.... can't believe I missed that on this list)

If all goes well, this coming fall will be my first semester with zero coursework requirements (only dissertation research... :roll: )!
So this fall is field research in British Columbia.
Winter quarter: nothing! Not even TA-ing, not even (nominal) research assistantship work!
Spring quarter: no coursework again, but TA-ing for Semantics II (I've always wanted to teach phonology or intro to linguistics, but I'm always stuck with the most difficult TA assignments... :? )
