ANTH 50.38 Social Lives of Energy: Energy Systems and their Social Contexts

In this course, we will analyze the cultures of energy systems, focusing on clean energy sources. Using a global case study approach, we will examine how energy systems impact historical, cultural, and political dimensions of life.  Overall, students will integrate how energy systems relate to social equity and climate change politics. One main theme in the course will be energy conflicts involving Indigenous peoples. Studying these conflicts allows us to investigate the multiple ways of being at stake in defining energy futures.

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.
