American Environmental Movements
In the twenty-first-century, environmental problems are often imagined to be problems of science, technology, and policy. This course starts from the idea that environmental problems are also problems of culture and history. An introduction to the environmental humanities, the course covers ideas that have shaped different forms of environmentalism and environmental science. The focus is U.S. environmental movements since the 1960s, with points of comparisons to other time periods and national contexts.
