I'm proposing a special topics course for the upcoming fall semester on the topic of Comparative Indigeneities.

Harvard University will again, through its Summer School (www.summer.harvard.edu), offer an online Animal Studies course. The 2019 course, which carries the title “The Animal-Human Divide,” is offered through the Anthropology department (ANTH S-1625 (33537)). This seminar-style course, which is conducted entirely online, meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:30PM beginning June 25.
Registration closes May 20.
