ANTH 214 - Climate, Ecology and Society in Sub-Saharan Africa: Cultural and Demographic Changes

4 credits
While the countries of the northern hemisphere debate policies to combat changes in the planet’s climate, the countries of sub-Saharan Africa are already experiencing significant climate shifts. These changes are most profound in the semi-arid Sahelian and Sudanic belts that skirt the southern edge of the Sahara. Here, the boundaries of where rainfall agriculture and cattle pastoralism are possible continue to move south and so, consequently, do populations. Enrollment priority given to majors. Prerequisites: ANTH 104  or ESS 210 . Check department listing for offering. CLA- Breadth: Social Science; CLA- Diversity: International
