ANG 6930 Power and Environment

Dr. Paulson

This course brings together natural and social scientists and practitioners to ask: How does power work in and through ecosystems, economies, environmental governance systems, institutions, bodies, and science itself? Participants explore environmental challenges and conflicts on scales ranging from local farms and forests to earth systems of atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere. Attention is drawn to unequal distribution of environmental benefits and burdens, asymmetrical exchange of material and energy, and contested understandings of human and other nature.
