The goal of this open elective module is to provide undergraduate students from across the University with an appreciation of: (a) how external factors related to the Earth System, including regional and global climate change and catastrophic events, have shaped the record of human evolution, migration and, subsequently, the development and structure of societies; (b) the principal geological factors that have contributed to the development and structure of agrarian and industrialised societies; (c) how humanity has come in turn to exert major impacts on the Earth, and, in particular, how the health of societies in the past and today is inextricably interlinked with the geological context, both the solid Earth and its hydrosphere, biosphere and pedosphere.
