Toxic Inequality: Environmental Justice in America
This Course At a Glance
1 credit. S/U grades only.
This course explores social justice in the environmental context and will engage students in the theory and practice of environmental justice with a particular focus on inequality. Students should have a strong interest in learning about the history and challenges of environmentally overburdened communities — often communities of color and low-income communities—while also exploring strategies for addressing inequalities as they relate to the environment. Students will learn and practice critical reflection as an essential component of this course and we will employ visual, oral, and narrative forms of reflection to appeal to a variety of learning styles.
