ANTH 208 - Trad Eco Knowldge & Cult Surv

Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is an integrated body of spiritual and practical knowledge that has evolved over vast stretches of time through the successful adaptation of a culture to its local environment. In this course, students will be introduced to the ways different cultures organize and categorize domains of TEK, including plants, animals, landscapes and kin. The class will also address the growing question of cultural survival in relation to environmental loss, as it is increasingly apparent that cultural diversity is directly related to biological diversity.
