Title: Ecological Anthropology

This course is an introduction to ecological anthropology, the study of the interrelationships between humans and their environments. Ecological anthropology is concerned with people's perceptions of and interactions with the physical and biological surroundings, and the various linkages between biological, cultural, and linguistic diversity. Topics to be explored include subsistence strategies, the ecology of ethnic foodways, human alteration of the environment, traditional knowledge of wild plants, ethnobiological classification, natural resource sustainability, intellectual property rights among indigenous peoples, the anthropology of tourism, environmental racism, and conservation policies in both simple and complex societies. My goal in teaching this class is to provide you with a broader understanding of the role of nature in perpetuating cultural knowledge for generations.
