The Human-Primate Interface


Conducted in English


This course explores the interface between humans and nonhuman primates and, more broadly, between humans and nature. Through readings, discussion, field trips, and written assignments, we will explore the relationship between humans and nonhuman primates from a variety or perspectives, including anthropology, biology, conservation science, economics, environmental science, history, linguistics, paleoanthropology, philosophy, and women's studies. This course is intended to help students recall and informally integrate ideas and concepts from a variety of fields of study across the Social Sciences, Biological Sciences, and Humanities. Students will also develop a greater appreciation and understanding of the biology of nonhuman primates, their various roles in human society, and the relationship between humans and the natural world. This course will involve experiential learning in and around Cape Town, South Africa.
