|Subject Overview:||This subject will address anthropological issues raised by the discourse of environmentalism, exploring the diverse ways in which individuals and societies perceive and interact with their environments. Students will explore constructions of nature and culture, how people place themselves in space and in time, and how they place the things of the world in relation to themselves. Students will also address uses and limitations of 'traditional ecological knowledge', patterns of land tenure and issues of land management. Students should become familiar with the different ways people interpret their roles and responsibilities in relation to the natural world, and with the ways understandings of nature both reflect and affect how people see themselves and their society.|
