For Cultural Ecology 2020 we read:

One of my favorite quotes from Ingold’s chapter is:

It is not because of his occupancy of a built environment that the urban dweller feels at home on the streets; it is because they are the streets of his neighborhood along which he is accustomed to walk or drive in his everyday life, presenting to him familiar faces, sights and sounds. And it is no different, in principle, for the hunter-gatherer, as the inhabitant of an environment unscarred by human engineering. (57)

This material was for Cultural Ecology 2020. I discussed these chapters in Cultural Ecology 2017 as How do you know a hunter and gatherer when you see one? I recorded a YouTube lecture on this material in 2022 for a history of anthropological thought course:


Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together.
