ANT 240 - Environmental Justice


This course examines the environmental justice movement with the premise that all people have a right to live in a clean environment free from hazardous pollution or contamination, and to access the natural resources necessary to sustain health and livelihood. Throughout the course, we explore the social, historical, political, and economic contributors to the denial of such rights for marginalized peoples. By exploring case studies in the United States and globally, we analyze contributing factors to unjust outcomes based on race, class, gender, ethnicity, and other identities; the power dynamics fueling the denial of rights for certain populations; and what is being done to address them.    Pass/Fail: Pass/Fail option Course Typically Offered: Every 2 years.

Prerequisite(s): None.

Credits: 3
