Module ECOLOGY AND POWER: ENVIRONMENTAL ANTHROPOLOGY

Module code: AN345
Credits: 5
Semester: 1
Department: ANTHROPOLOGY
International: Yes
Coordinator: Dr Chandana Mathur (ANTHROPOLOGY)
Overview Overview
 

Jason Moore has proposed the term ‘Capitalocene’ to replace the somewhat nebulous discourse of the ‘Anthropocene’ -- this module similarly insists on a world historically informed understanding of present-day environmental crises, including climate change. Thus, it focuses on writings that exemplify the trans-disciplinary political ecology approach, leaning in the direction of work that deals with struggles over water. The latter part of the module is a close reading of Misreading the African Landscape, a classic environmental ethnography by James Fairhead and Melissa Leach.
