Credits: 3

Migration and displacement due to the global environmental crisis continue to gain attention and relevance in academic policy and media circles. However, theoretical and critical perspectives in the growing field of climate mobilities remain underrepresented in a field dominated by future projections and speculation as to the implications of large-scale movements for border securitization. The objective of this course is to shed new light by broadening the field’s scope, specifically, by including perspectives from critical environmental thought and philosophical accounts of human (and more-than-human) rights. The course will cover theories and concepts at the intersection of environmental ethics, migration, and social philosophy. Particular focus will be given to how critical social thought and critical reflection about the environment shape our understanding of climate and mobility justice.
