in that community.

interdisciplinary course will investigate the interwoven social, cultural,
scientific, and technological aspects of the Anthropocene, the geologic age
defined by the influence of humans on the planet. Students in the class can
expect to develop an understanding of how the Anthropocene is defined, to
examine scientific evidence for that definition, and to discuss the scientific
and social implications of that definition. The course will also consider
technological and social strategies for managing complexity in this new era.
