Course Description:

Examines the intersection of "race"/racism and environmentalism. It begins from the premise that environmental issues are always already racialized.

Discussion may include: the history and current practices of environmental justice movements; questions of race and representation in green politics; the significance of environmentalism's silence about race; cross-cultural and anti-racist environmental politics; and postcolonial perspectives on global environmental issues. Prerequisite: Third or fourth year standing.
