How we understand the environment has material effects


Matt Gusmerotti

This episode from Meriel Hahn in Fall 2020’s ANTH 405, Public Anthropology and Global Environmental Challenges, class at Colorado State University examines our current view of the world and ways in which we can move to understand this view and its effects better. Hahn’s episode also touches on ways in which the human perception of the world has changed over the past few decades and speculates the real effect this change will have on humans. Hahn explains different takes on topics such as wilderness preserves and control over nature. Hahn defines the Anthropocene and what it means for the planet.
