UN1100: Environment and Cultural Behavior | P. West

Undergraduate Seminar
Course Time TBD
Summer 2021 B Term

This course examines the relationships between Indigenous peoples, rural communities, and the environment. As it becomes increasingly apparent that environmental disasters are inextricably tied to extractive economies, this course will focus on the historic and contemporary processes, structures, and events that gave rise to contemporary landscapes of dispossession. We will base our discussions on works written by Indigenous scholars, feminist scholars, and scholars from the global south.
