ANT 3620 - Political Ecology and Sustainability (3)

When Offered: Spring. Alternate years
An introduction to the interdisciplinary field of political ecology as an important critical approach in contemporary anthropology. The course uses in-depth examples to understand how current global issues like sustainability, conservation, and land management regimes can be critically engaged through the lenses of history and power. Students in the course will study several political ecology ethnographies to deepen their critical awareness of past and present struggles over land use, natural resources, and other embattled human-environment relationships.
