Ethnobiology 2


Description

Prerequisite:
Ethnobiology 1 or an understanding of the concepts covered in Ethnobiology 1.

Monday, June 23 8:30-10:30 am

Sacred landscapes, home gardens and other ecological features are perceived in a variety of ways codified in culture, worldviews and ultimately, language. Perceptions of place, movement within space and different practices within landscapes may predict how we act within those landscapes and thus often provide a unique window into culture and language. This workshop includes a discussion of these things and an interactive exercise highlighting the role of language in thinking about nested natural and cultural systems.
