As an anthropologist, I am very interested in the history of the human relationship with our environment. I teach human ecology in several courses (particularly in Cultural Anthropology, Geography, Peoples and Cultures in Conflict, and my new course Environment, Population and Culture), because I think students need to grasp a longer view of our currently quite troubled relationship with the planet. I am particularly interested in food strategies, industrialization and consumerism, and their consequences.
