GEOG 370 - Political Ecology: Conflict, Control, and Environmental Change


3 credits
Environmental issues are fundamentally political, not just in their causes and consequences, but also in the ways they are conceptualized. Political ecology - an interdisciplinary academic endeavor and form of political activism - examines the power relations of environmental conflicts and the social appropriation of nature. Throughout the course, we will apply concepts from political-economic and social theory to explore human-environment relationships in a variety of geographical contexts (U.S. and international) and at multiple scales (local to global). In doing so, we will question commonly held views and assumptions about the causes and consequences of environmental change.
