Course Description:

How do we live with others? (And who are “we”?) How might we live with others differently? In our course, we’ll explore these and related questions. We’ll explore our responses to them and our responses’ ethical and political implications. We’ll do so across disciplines, reading and discussing works from anthropology, philosophy, and science studies. That will lead us to reconsider things like ecology, diversity, and inclusivity in new ways, and without our often unquestioned humanistic privilege.
