ANTH 110 PZ -Nature and Society in Amazonia

Institution: Pitzer

Description: The course investigates the relations between humans and the environment, focusing on the inter-play of social and natural Amazonian worlds in material, political, cultural and economic terms. The course has ethnographic and historical components: we will study different Amazonian groups and the ways their lives connect to the forest and its beings; we will consider the history of the human presence and the colonization of the Amazon to tease out the different roles that the region has played in the political-economy and the imaginary of Western societies.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
