Perspectives in Environment and Culture: (Spring 2024)
Through the lenses of geography, anthropology and biology, this course explores past, present and future human-environment interactions across the world, particularly those involving wildlife. Using a multidisciplinary approach, participants will gain a deeper understanding of cultural interactions with the natural environment through experiences on zoo grounds, presentations and activities that can be used to engage students in exploring these issues. Spring 2024 will focus on Urban Wildlife.
