An exploration of the theoretical principles and methodological toolkit of contemporary primatology. This seminar is designed to develop research skills and critical thinking by postgraduate-level students in anthropology. A key aim of this course is to examine the state of primate research and conservation in order to re-conceptualise the ‘human-alloprimate interface’.
By the end of this course students should:
- Have gained insightinto the myriad of interactions between primates and the broader-scale ecological communities that they are a part of
- Be able to developa working understanding of the major theoretical frameworks, methodologies and methods in contemporary primatology
- Be proficient in navigating the many ethical nuances and practical challenges of primatological fieldwork
