Welcome to: HEKN11 Human Ecology: Culture, Economy and Ecology, 15 credits
This course examines the wider historical, cultural, and political contexts of what we think of as the “economy” by illuminating its semiotic and epistemological as well as biophysical conditions.
The course comprises four concentration modules focusing on intersecting themes: Global Environmental History; Economies as Cultural Systems; Symbolic Dimensions of Human-Environmental Relations; The Political Ecology of the World-System. These four themes will provide the student with essential perspectives and analytical tools to achieve an integrated, trans-disciplinary understanding of the cultural and political dimensions of sustainability.
