COURSE DESCRIPTION

Environmental Studies 113 explores the interconnection between human beings, technologies and the environment, focusing on cultural representations of people, technologies, nature and non-humans (animals, plants). It will be a survey course designed to help students understand and use the frameworks from humanities (philosophy, literature, arts, cultural studies, media studies, sociology and history) to become critical thinkers and environmentally aware citizens. The course will use readings, films, and art works to build students' abilities to analyze environmental issues from a humanistic perspective.
