DSC_0713Between 9-14 December 2013, 19 student participants came together in the Austral Center for Scientific Research (CADIC) to participate in a course organized by the National University of Tierra del Fuego in conjunction with the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech. The course, entitled “Integrating Human and Natural Dimensions to better Study and Conserve Socio–Ecological Systems,” brought together professors from the U.S. and Argentina and students from Argentina, Chile, U.S. and Columbia to explore what and how to incorporate humans not only into our studies of the world, but also the very way we conceive nature and the “human-nature” relationship.
