Books and Treatises on Shipbuilding Anthropology 614 Fall 2009 Thursday, 9:25 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. Room ANTH105 Dr. Filipe Vieira de Castro Office 105 Anthropology Building, Tel. 845-6220, E-Mail: fvcastro@tamu.edu Office hours: 2-5 Monday or by appointment In this course we will examine theoretical books of shipbuilding from the early 15th to the early 19th century. Each three-hour meeting will encompass one oral report on the day’s theme (45 minutes), followed by three or four oral presentations and discussions of case- studies related to the day’s theme (20 minutes), and based on relevant primary material (shipwrecks or historical documents). In addition, there will be general readings assigned to the whole class. In order for this to work, everyone must keep up with the readings, and everyone must participate in the discussion. The final grade is based 50% on oral reports and class participation, and 50% on a term paper. General readings Greenhill, Basil, The Evolution of the Wooden Ship. New York: Facts of File, 1988.
