Man in the Marine Environment.
Hogg, Thomas C.; And Others
The program, Man in the Marine Environment, conducted by the Department of Anthropology, Oregon State University, between July, 1970 and June, 1971, consisted of two major components: (1) research, and (2) direct educational outputs in the form of a series of credit seminars and a public speaker's program. Research, as described in the procedures and findings of this report, was aimed at (1) examination of the relationship of particular cultural systems to the marine environment, (2) inventorying alternative uses of the marine environment by man to satisfy his subsistence, comfort, and ideological needs, and (3) analysis of attitudes of people toward the marine environment and the effects of these attitudes on the marine resources. The component of educational output is detailed through a three-term course of lectures and seminar sessions and the public speaker's program. Course content for each of the three terms is outlined as well as a summary for each of the public speaker's lectures. Speaker's topics considered man, wildlife, the shore, law, aboriginal patterns of adaptation, changing values, folklore, and economic development. Future program developments and anticipated professional relationships are also reported. (BL)
