Justice and the Environment|
Fall 2013 not offered
|Certificates: Environmental Studies, Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory|
So many of our environmental problems disproportionately burden certain groups. In this course, we will first examine competing conceptions of justice and then, through the lens of justice, exploring the intersectional injustices posed by environmental issues, we will discuss environmental justice, gender justice, food justice, and climate justice.
