ENST 240 Environmental Justice

The field of environmental justice rests on two central insights: 1) humans are organisms. as such, we are interconnected with and affected by our environments (be it noise, toxins, flooding, green space, etc.). 2) Injustice between humans exists. This injustice manifests in many ways, including how our environments affect us. This course examines these insights together; the empirical, science-based idea that positive and negative effects of environments on human populations is testable and knowable, and the philosophical, humanities-rooted idea that human interactions should be characterized by justice and fairness. Using various social lenses, historical persepectives, and philosophical theories of justice, we examine a series of case studies defined by data, proof, and experience. In the process, we learn that there is much more to the study of the environmnet than a simple focus on wilderness or endangered species. Humans are organisms, too! (1) 1 Unit
