Course Description

This is an introductory/intermediate level course on the relationships between environment and economic development. While this course emphasizes environmental concerns of the ?Global South?, this course will also cover instances of ?Global Northern? peoples and places, particularly in less privileged areas such as Appalachia. The course examines the political economy of environmental destruction by asking why, despite much significant research, environmentally destructive development schemes continue. Although we understand at least the main contours of what it will take to become a sustainable society, little progress has been made in implementing even evidently necessary policies.
