    WHAT COULD A MORE SUSTAINABLE SET OF RELATIONS LOOK LIKE FOR THE FUTURE?

    Tuesday 6 – 9 pm, Davenport Hall 209A

     

    Eligibility: Juniors and Seniors with at least one course in sustainability issues or anthropology, and capable of working well collaboratively and independently.

    This new experimental course takes the centrality of animals in human life seriously as a necessary and vital component of any discussion of sustainable ways of living.

    We will explore large-scale, place-based investigations of human relations with animals on the land, in the air, in the sea, and on the ice.  Topics will include: wildlife, farmed animals, pets, and urban animals.
