Environmental Justice - IDH 3404
This course engages with the history, core concepts, and effects of the environmental justice movement, examining how race and class interact to produce and sustain environmental inequities. Foundationally, it approaches environmental issues from a lens attentive to issues of social justice. Course materials highlight the need to address thorny environmental issues and their long-term consequences including the disproportionate burdening of historically marginalized communities with debilitation, displacement, and death.
