ANTH 365 - Environmental Anthropology

This course examines how the concept of culture can contribute to our understanding of environmental issues, in terms of how human beings adapt to their environment and the way in which they understand and give meaning to the world they live in. It aims to develop an anthropological understanding of the environment and to understand the way the “environmental crisis”-of resource scarcity and ecological degradation-is the outcome of particular structures of power, economic relations and consumption. Alternate years. (4 Credits)
