ENST 200 - Environmental Perspectives
This course explores the nexus of nature, culture, society and person. Utilizing interdisciplinary approaches from the environmental humanities, we will examine tensions and dilemmas running though conservation discourses and contemporary environmental thinking. In order to give historical context to complex human perspectives on our environment, attention will be given to the combined forces of western culture, colonialism, globalization as well as the ways in which contemporary economic order and the modern nation state shape the relationship between humans and the environment. Northern and global perspectives will be examined, as will northern issues of current interest.
