An Environment and Cultural Heritage Workbook for Students and Teachers
Read the Fine Print

Rating
0.0 stars

The word "heritage" is one that means many things to many people. It often brings to mind things like food, language, clothing, or other traditions that are passed on from generation to generation. But it also includes places, buildings, art, values, and ways of making a living in particular environments. In Maya communities, as is the case elsewhere around the world, cultural practices and the environment are tightly connected, with one shaping the other.With this workbook we take a broad view of heritage, one that links cultural and environmental histories, landscapes, and practices together. A term that UNESCO and others often use is "cultural landscapes" to refer to a long and intimate relationship between peoples and their...environment (http://whc.unesco.org/en/culturallandscape/)." This also reflects the ways many of the people who shared this information for the workbook view their own heritage.

Ethnographic Methods at Work – another day on the grind
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Ethnographies of Work I introduces students to sociological and anthropological perspectives on work as they investigate a range of careers. The course approaches work as a cultural system invested with meanings, norms, values, customs, behavioral expectations, and social hierarchies. Students pose key questions through the lens of ethnography in order to investigate workplaces, occupations, and career pathways in an urban context. Guided by the ethnographer's assumption that there's "always more than meets the eye," students are encouraged to uncover myths and stereotypes about the work world and gain appreciation of how and why work matters to individuals in a range of occupations. Students explore dimensions of work life in the context of contemporary dynamics of disruption, uncertainty, innovation, and diversity, and draw connections between the self and work through readings, films, interviews, and fieldwork.
