ANTH 082 PZ -Global Environmental Conflict
Description: This class uses the tools of anthropology and political ecology to examine environmental conflicts in an era that scholars increasingly refer to as the “Anthropocene.” We will consider what it means to live in a world in which the human influence on the environment is pervasive. We will also examine the institutions and forces that mediate human impacts on the environment, including the relationships between corporations and their critics; production, consumption, and waste; and the role of nongovernmental organizations. Students will have the opportunity to apply their anthropological understandings to public communication about the California drought in the final project.
