Global Political Ecology

Spring 2018

Taught By: Rafi Youatt

Section: AX

CRN: 6361

Credits: 4

Contemporary global politics exists in the midst of an unprecedented era of environmental change, with issues from biodiversity loss to climate change affecting every corner of the planet. Frequently, however, these problems are considered in technical terms, as a matter of science or policy, needing simply political will to work. This course examines the relationship between politics and ecology in the global arena through the lenses of critical environmental politics, focusing on the political structures, power relations, and patterns of thought that allow these environmental problems to continue. The course will be grounded in a series of case studies from around the world, with the broader aim of teaching students to do independent research in global political ecology.
