GOVT 273
Spring 2021
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CEAS 273, ENVS 273
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate, Sustainability and Environmental Justice

This is an upper-division course on the environmental politics of East Asia. It will focus on the major environmental issues of our time (pollution, conservation, energy, waste, environmental justice, etc.), and how East Asian countries are coping with them from both policy and politics perspectives. It will cover both transnational and international efforts, as well as national and local initiatives. The course will require that students "do" environmental politics as well as study environmental politics through a civic engagement component.

This course will be taught fully remote in spring 2021 in order to make it possible for students located abroad to take the course. There will be voluntary opportunities for in-person interactions at several points during the course for those who are located on campus.
