11-12. Science & Sustainability

This is the comment page for chapter six, “Engaging with Nature,” in Cultural Anthropology. This class follows on Social Relations. The next class is on Personhood.

This chapter included a ton of examples, with connections back to topics and anthropologists we read about in previous chapters. We took this approach:

  1. Began with the Tim Ingold section “Why we need anthropological research to forge environmental futures” (183-184).
  2. Paged through the chapter, from the beginning (152-195).
  3. Found the section that most interested you and did a bit of follow-up research.
  4. Posted results in the comments.
