ANTH 345 - Environment and Society 3 hours

This course explores the interaction between social processes and the natural environment. Taking a multidisciplinary approach (sociology and anthropology), and building on theoretical perspectives and cross-cultural case studies, this course investigates the increasing pressure of human activities on the environment, the globalization of environmental challenges, the privatization of natural resources (water, forests, energy sources, but also genes and genetically modified organisms), the policies encouraging this privatization process, and the recent growth of environmental social movements. Cross-listed as SOCI 345 . Prerequisites:  junior standing.
