SIO 114/ETHN 136 The Science and Critical Analysis of Environmental Justice is designed to bring together students from both STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and Social Sciences and Humanities backgrounds to consider the multiple ways that humans and society interact with the environment. Many technological advances come at a great cost, some of which negatively affect the environment and its inhabitants, mainly in low-income, people of color, and Indigenous communities. This course will introduce students to historical debates and theoretical frameworks through which the relationship between humanity and the environment is studied. The course will also introduce students to research methodologies for working in collaboration with communities negatively impacted by human induced changes in the environment.--Read More Introducing this Course!--
