The course will creatively explore the tensions and overlaps between landscape as physical landform, as scenery, and as the site of human activities and journeys. Developing advanced themes in environmental anthropology, we will discuss the central place of landscape in ethnography. Topics covered include movement, aesthetics, landscape and the body politic, and relations with non-humans. The basis of the course will be historical perspectives (from archaeology, geography and history of art as well as anthropology) and recent ethnographies of landscape.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
