Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Environment and Sustainability - Multispecies Ethnography

ANTH 4106  Multispecies Ethnography


Any 30 credits completed.


Three hours of seminar per week for one term.




This course explores how anthropologists 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. It examines 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.
