Title: 2014 syllabus Anthropology of Climate Change
Description: The premise of the course is that contemporary debates about climate change cannot be fully comprehended without knowledge of theorizing regarding climate and society that is as ancient as human civilization itself. The main topics are: (a) ‘Continuities’ from past to present. How have differences in climate been used since the classical era to explain differences (vs similarities) in people? (b) “Societal and Environmental Change’. What shape did environmental determinism take in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries? (c) “Vulnerability and Control’ What means by which societies attempt to cope with extreme climatic events? How do such events reflect, reveal, and reproduce socioeconomic fault lines? (d) “Knowledge and Its Circulation”. How is knowledge of climate constituted? How does such knowledge become an object of contestation between global and local, North and South?
