ANTHR 2420 - [Nature/Culture: Ethnographic Approaches to Human-Environment Relations]


     
Next offered 2016-2017. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

P. Nadasdy.

One of the most pressing questions of our time is how we should understand the relationship between nature (or “the environment”) and culture (or society) - and/or whether these should be viewed as separate domains at all.  How one answers this question has important implications for how we go about thinking and acting in such diverse social arenas as environmental politics, development, and indigenous-state relations.  This course serves as an introduction to the various ways anthropologists and other scholars have conceptualized the relationship between humans and the environment and considers the material and political consequences that flow from these conceptualizations.
