Love Them or Loath Them: Insects in Human Culture

Part of: Insect and Nature Series

Course description

Insects and humans have had a love-hate relationship since our earliest days. This is not surprising since they pre-date our time on this planet by several hundred million years! Here we will explore how insects have both enriched and extinguished human lives throughout our history and around the globe. This course includes a brief introduction to insect diversity and natural history. We then explore our relationships with insects in a variety of contexts: domestication (food and other products), destruction (pests), disease (carriers of illness) and design (inspiration). Please come ready to share your favourite examples of insects you have loved and/or loathed!
