Short Course Description

The shift from a hunting-gathering lifestyle to a way of life based on agriculture and animal husbandry is widely considered to have been one of the most radical transitions in human history. This transition, which is still taking place in various parts of the world, has been examined mainly with a view to understanding the economic and social changes involved as well as the biological changes in the cultivated species. Various studies point out that this transition is characterized by a considerable change in ways of perceiving and knowing the world. During this course we will be examining the interrelationship between economy, social structures and ways of perceiving the environment, with a focus on contemporary hunter-gatherer and agricultural societies. In addition we shall be asking how and in what way an improved understanding of these processes is relevant to our lives in modern and post-modern societies in the twenty first century.
