ANTH272 - POLITICS OF NATURE

In this course, we will study the human dimensions of the environment and map the political landscapes of issues ranging from environmental justice to climate change. This course approaches these problems not simply as "environmental" problems but as fundamentally political problems with complex and intertwined histories and economies. We will ask: How is it that nature becomes political?What are the contemporary forms of governance and power regimes that manage theenvironment? How is environmental transformation linked to international markets and state building? And ultimately, what is the relationship between science and democracy?
