Anthropology of Roots and Rooting

Credit Hours:
3

Roots and rooting are summoned as metaphors for re-territorialization and cultural revitalization among local people, refugees, and immigrants whose senses of place may be undermined in a globalizing world. With modernity and globalization, dislocation and placelessness are increasingly becoming inescapable features of the human lifescape but what is less obvious is that often they trigger creative responses. In this course, we will explore the scholarship on sensory memory and embodiment while practicing sensuous conservation through gardens and food.
