Anthropology (ANTH) - The Anthropocene

ANTH 2056  The Anthropocene


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Theories of the Anthropocene posit that we live in a new epoch that is characterized by the fundamental transformation of the Earth by human beings. This course explores ideas and debates about the historical roots and the long-term consequences of the Anthropocene and critically examines the long-distance networks of production, consumption, and exploitation that have shaped the contemporary world.
