Additional Details:

What is the relationship between race and the environment?  How does an examination of race and the environment alter dominant, disparate narratives about the natural and human worlds?  This course seeks to bridge the disconnect between humans and their larger environment.  In this course, we discuss various topics that relate to the environment, medicine, and race, including the impact of colonialism on the American landscape, immigration and biodiversity, chemical warfare, whiteness in dominant environmental movements, and present-day environmental racism and justice.
