This unique course spans the disciplines of politics and ecology to understand biodiversity from local, national, and global scales, in both urban and rural contexts. It ties the growing field of urban ecology and biodiversity, with critical social theory and analysis surrounding environmental politics. Through a cross-disciplinary perspective, we will engage in critical assessments of sciences as a political practice, look clearly at the material effects of environmental discourses, and engage theoretically with work about the boundaries, ontologies, and political economies of environmental issues.
Open to Undergraduate students.
