Special Topics Course: ANTH 317 Energy and Crisis
The course explores issues of global significance from a cross-cultural perspective by focusing on the tensions between increasing diversity of perspective in an increasingly interdependent world. From the view points of an emergent anthropology in action, we will examine the comparative, cross-cultural contexts of demographic change, ecology, economic development, information systems, international health, and nationalism. We will study anthropological texts that broaden the cultural analysis of the global change process and its effects on institutions and communities.
