The course introduces students to anthropological contributions to understanding anthropogenic climate change and towards efforts to address its effects and its causes. Students will learn to apply anthropological theory to key themes in the field of climate change such as the production of scientific knowledge, activism, conflict, political debate and diplomacy. They will become familiar with indigenous, gendered and decolonial perspectives, the role of local ecological knowledge for producing evidence and for adaptation and mitigation, and holistic approaches to energy technology transitions. Students will learn to articulate climate change in terms of ecological dependencies between human communities and soil, air, forests and water. They will engage actively with ethnographic case studies to be read in advance of class discussions, as a basis for developing critical insight into the multidimensional problem of climate crisis. Through the requirement to produce brief original studies on the subject, they will gain independent research and presentation skills.
