Description

This course offers an anthropological perspective on contemporary environmental problems in an era that geologists call the “Anthropocene,” addressing the following questions: What does it mean to live on an “overheating” planet in which change is ever-accelerating? How does human influence on the environment result in new “multispecies relationships”? Can protests against the harmful consequences of industrialized modes of production succeed? How are patterns of consumption and waste interconnected? How might we imagine new ways to live and thrive on the planet Earth? Readings include several monographs and articles posted online.

Course Requirements:

Students will write several short discussion papers.
