ANTH 212 - Ecological Perspectives on Small-Scale Societies

Next Offered: Offered in a Future Term

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4SS, CD

Popular conceptions regard forager societies as primitive and naive or as prescient conservationists. In this course we will use an ecological framework to explore diversity in forager cultures, and the complex relationships that exist between small-scale societies and their environments. We will also consider the relevance of contemporary foragers to the study of the prehistoric past, and the futures of these groups as they are increasingly drawn into the global economic market.
