Course description

In much of traditional Western thinking, nature and culture have generally been treated as separate. Based on fieldwork in communities around the world, anthropologists were among the first social scientists to change this view and to consider nature and culture together. Students in this course explore issues relating to the way people know, interact with, and care about their environment. This includes interactions with, and the meanings of, (urban) wildlife, climate change studies, biodiversity conservation, and the challenges of natural resource management. In addition, students will develop skills in ethnographic fieldwork.
