New Geography course: GEOG 370 Problems in Resource Management: Environmental Conservation

Are you interested in issues of the environment?  Check out this new course that
explores “the change of Western ideas about the environment over time, and how changing attitudes toward nature have resolved some environmental problems while simultaneously giving way to new crises.”

Winter 2015, M/W 12:30 – 2:20pm, SLN 14829

GEOG 370 will explore the theory, politics, and practices of environmental conservation and resource management. It will address how Western ideas about the environment have changed over time, and how changing attitudes toward nature have resolved some environmental problems while simultaneously giving way to new crises. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, case studies, and debates, we will explore what can be done to bring more about more ecologically beneficial and socially just conservation strategies.

The course has no prerequisites and is open to all students regardless of major. Students who have taken GEOG 123, 205, 270, or 271 should be well-prepared for this course. For Geography majors GEOG 370 may count toward EES, GHD, or elective credits.
