ANT 265 - Climate Change and Society


This course examines how climate change has impacted society across time and space. Using a range of archaeological, historical, and contemporary case studies, this course explores how climate change has served as an inhibitor (stressor) and stimulator (opportunity) in societal and cultural development in a range of different contexts (e.g., subsistence, economics, migration). The course examines important concepts of climate change (e.g., vulnerability, resilience, mitigation, and adaptation), explores the myriad of human responses to climate change, and concludes with an assessment of impacts of climate change in the state of Maine. Students may receive credit for only one of these courses. Cross-Listed: GEO 265 . Course Typically Offered: Every 2 years.
