Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences

Framed within the context of theories in human ecology, this course investigates material culture ranging from individual artifacts to community, including local and global environments. The roles and effects of material culture on individual, familial and community living are explored through literature, artifacts and life-stories. These issues are examined through a combination of seminars and group work culminating in an exhibit. Prerequisite: HECOL 201.
