Environmental Studies (ENST) - Multispecies Ethnography

ENST 5106  Multispecies Ethnography


This course is restricted to MES/MESc students, but is open to students from other graduate programs upon approval.


3 hours per week




Students explore the ways in which scholars in the social sciences and humanities have problematized the once taken-for-granted division between nature and culture, stressing that human beings should not be considered separately from the more-than-human communities in which they live. Students examine ethnographic works that position animals, plants, fungi and microbes both as cultural entities and as agents of history. Topics may include: domestication and wildness, the cultural life of pets, and biotechnology.
