Moodle site: Course

Faculty

Hannah A. Holleman (Section 01)

Description

As a basis for understanding current global ecological crises, this course marries natural and social history as well as ecological and social science of the human society/environment nexus. We will study the anthropogenic drivers of environmental change in historical perspective. The new and greater scale of environmental degradation made possible by industrialization and the globalizing tendencies of the modern economic system will receive special attention as these continue to be central factors promoting ecological change. Course readings include classical social theory as well as current perspectives on the relationship between modern human society and the broader environment of which we are a part.

Limited to 25 students.  Fall semester.  Professor Holleman.

If Overenrolled: priority will be given to sophomores and first year students in anthropology /sociology and environmental studies.
