ANTH 317 - Qualitative Methods in Environmental Anthropology

4 credits
This course will provide a foundational training in the core qualitative research methods used in anthropology, with an emphasis on applying those techniques to environmental questions. Methods covered in this course include participant-observation and interviewing along with environmentally-focused methods including soundscape research and collaborative mapping. We will then explore how those methods can be adapted to include considerations for nonhumans like animals, plants, mountains, and spirits. Course materials will include case studies from anthropology on environmental topics in Asia. Students will have an opportunity to use these techniques through an ethnographic research project that addresses nonhumans in the local environment.
Prerequisites & Notes: Prerequisites: Previous coursework in anthropology encouraged but not required.

Restrictions: No restrictions on enrollment
