This subject explores the key concepts and debates concerning the nature of knowledge, how it relates to ecological and other ideological issues and the position of indigenous knowledge systems in these concerns. Science will be examined as a culturally specific approach to the environment and its protection and preservation. Indigenous knowledge systems, modes of production and conceptions of technology will be explored to assess what they may offer in terms of generating new approaches to environmental management issues. Some of the guiding ideas relating to key concepts such as human being, nature, ecology, civilised, wild, resource and conservation will be examined from a historical and cultural perspective. The focus of the subject is to understand eco-cosmologies in a variety of cultural contexts ranging from Australia to Asia and to explore the intersection of local with global environmental politics.
