Literature and Society: Global Perspectives on Environmental Justice

ENG 574

Info tab content
This interdisciplinary seminar explores imaginative and political responses to unequal access to resources and exposure to risk at a time of widening economic disparity. To engage these concerns, we venture to India, Japan, the Caribbean, South Africa, Kenya, the UK, the Pacific Northwest, Bolivia, the Faroe Islands, and the Middle East. Issues we address include: environmental justice, climate justice, the Anthropocene, water security, deforestation, the commons, indigenous movements, the environmentalism of the poor, the gendered and racial dimensions of environmental justice, and the position of the writer-activist.
