Course Description

This course examines the links between cultural diversity and biodiversity in the context of the current global experience of large-scale ecosystem destruction. Language hotspots, which are regions that contain a multiplicity of endangered languages, overlap significantly with biodiversity hotspots, similarly defined in terms of a multiplicity of threatened species. We will engage in comparative study of current projects either initiated or managed by indigenous communities that promote resilience in ways that connect language revitalization and biodiversity conservation.

This course fulfills GenEd S&H, CASE S&H, and CASE Critical Approaches.
