ANT 323 - Environment, Culture, and Sustainability (1)

Human induced climate change is and will continue to be one of the most important challenges facing humankind in the 21st century. Rising seas, flooding, increased forest fire activity, drought, more unpredictable and dramatic weather, species loss, loss of coral reefs and other vulnerable habitats, intense heat waves, melting of glacier and polar ice and food crop instability are just some of the changes we can anticipate. In this course we will examine the anthropological contribution to our understanding of how humans interact with these changing environmental conditions. Prerequisite: ANT 101  and one course in ANT or SOC at the 200 level or above.
