Title: The Anthropology of Climate Change
Description: This course examines the history of cultural ecology and environmental anthropology as they related to our understandings of global environmental change, reviewing the work of Steward and others who sought to understand how human societies interact with their environments. Throughout the term, we consider the role of applying anthropology in interdisciplinary contexts to help develop strategies for handling environmental and other impacts related to climate change. The focus will be on case studies about climate change related to energy use, water resources, and health, along with discussion of ethical and political consideration. The broader context of social-ecological systems research will frame our exploration of the drivers and impacts of climate change, using STELLA software to model specific problems. This is a research and discussion-based class, and students will be expected to participate in class and outside activities.
