ANT 420 - Human Impacts on Ancient Environments


Designed to challenge students to critically evaluate the relationship between humans and their environment, and to assess the local, regional, and global impact of humans on our planet.  The long, diachronic approach taken here, particularly over the past 10,000 years, will serve to broaden our understanding of how humans have effected change in our landscapes and resource distribution in the past, and ultimately how this perspective may be integrated with contemporary resource management and environmental policy for the future.  Historical ecology is also introduced as a research program structured to evaluate the historical role human agency has played in shaping contemporary landscapes.
