ENVR 320 - Environmental Justice

4 Hour(s) Credit
Questions how human systems of distribution of resources, of space and of pollution intersect with environmental degradation, human health concerns and access to environmental amenities. Central to this framing of environmental studies is the question of equity - what is fair and just? How do environments replicate systems of human injustice or exploitation? Focus is historical and contemporary, analyzing current environmental justice concerns and considering their historical antecedents.
Three hours per week with enhancement.
Prerequisites Two courses in ENVR or junior standing.
