The programme encourages a critical perspective on the practice and epistemology of conservation and anthropology, paving the way for the integration of the two disciplines methodologically and theoretically. We pay particular attention to the inter-relationship between local/indigenous populations and environmental groups, policy-makers, legislators, and institutions concerned with the protection of the environment (for example, natural parks or green development projects). In teaching and research we explore themes such as human-animal conflicts, environmental politics, disputes over fragile environments, attitudes to conservation among indigenous groups, and indigenous environmental knowledge and practices.
These are the courses undertaken in this thematic area:
