ES/AN 367 - Ecological Anthropology
This course analyzes the relationship between society and nature through a transcultural point of view. The analysis includes reflections about what Eco-Anthropology is as a subject, but also delves into the history of the discipline to understand its evolution as a blueprint of the social and academic debate of specific historical periods. The class studies key concepts in Ecological Anthropology and evaluates environmental conflicts through its focus on central themes to the filed. Finally, the course incorporates case studies of human-environmental relations that focus on Latin America in particular.
NOTE: This course is offered during the regular semester and in the summer. For summer sections, the course schedule is condensed, but the content, learning outcomes, and contact hours are the same.
