ANTH 50.18 Anthropocene Imaginaries

The world warms, and global environmental imaginaries transform. Evolving representations of culture and environment have compelling implications for human rights and indigenous sovereignties over land, water and natural resources. Human security will be shaped not only by the unfolding impacts of climate change, but also by how we frame the understandings and ethical commitments we articulate in response to them. This course will explore the anthropology of climate change, and consider how visions and aesthetics of place in the twenty-first century are interconnected with transforming global discourses about environmental security, governance and power. Blending environmental humanities and social science perspectives, we will also reflect upon critical approaches to political ecology and the idea of “the Anthropocene” itself.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
