ENVS 334 Political Ecology (4)

Political ecology explores the interrelationships between political, social, economic factors and the environment. This class draws on critical scholarship to examine key themes of political ecology such as environmental degradation, conservation, and conflict, along with more recent engagements in the field with concerns of climate change, and the political ecology of health. The course will challenge students to think critically about the connections between humans and the environment, learn about social science methods, and to envision more socially and environmentally just futures.
