Global Environmental Activism

Global Environmental Activism
In this course we will critically explore foundations of anti/postcolonial theories and environmental activism. We will use an interdisciplinary perspective to challenge global dominant concepts of the environment and agri-food systems and critically explore collective/individual responses. We will examine macro and micro level environmental realities connected to collective agency, social change, environmental activism, and individual implications in our everyday social relations in a transnational context. Throughout the course we will explore literature from different disciplines (such as sociology, environmental studies, anthropology, history, women’s studies, ethnic studies, and other interrelated disciplines), and cover different regions of the world. This course will count as an elective towards the SOAN major and as a cognate for ENVS majors who have a focus in the natural sciences.
