ANTH 452 - Global Environmental Movements


4 credits
Explores the diversity of contemporary environmental movements through ethnographic case studies from different parts of the world. In each case, we will consider how environmental conflicts and movements are shaped by cultural contexts and relations of power. Topics will include conservation, environmental justice, land rights, social movements, political ecology, and theories on nature, culture, and social change. The goal of the course is to expand students’ awareness of how people view nature cross-culturally, how understandings of environment shape social movements, and how local and global processes shape people, places, and environmental struggles. Prerequisite(s): ANTH 213  or ES 103  , junior standing or permission of instructor.
