Course Description

This course utilizes a social movements perspective to examine the various kinds of conflicts emerging over “environment,” including disputes over food, animal rights, parks, wilderness, energy, and water. Building on the anthropological literature on landscape and political ecology, this course explores the various ways in which social movement constituencies are responding to and engaging with the uncertain and uneven nature of environmental change.
