History of Creating Environmental Social Change
Although environmental issues are often presented ahistorically, every issue is historically rooted to economic, political, social, and cultural reasons. This course explores the role that historically-rooted lines of power such as race, gender, and class produce patterns of local and global environmental resource use and abuse. Students learn these histories by studying key environmental figures who have fought for environmental justice and social change. Finally, students recognize that history provides a meaningful and important framework for understanding the present and can be used to provide solutions to some of the most pressing environmental justice issues.
