ESM 295A

Equity and the Environment

Dena Montague

Units: 2


This seminar-style course provides an overview and foundational understanding of environmental justice. We begin by examining different attempts to define “environmental justice,” finding ways to start applying it, and understanding it in the context of environmental racism, history, and colonialism. The remaining classes are devoted to exploring special topics in environmental justice, such as water, energy, pollution, coastal resources, conservation, and corporate management. Each class is discussion-based, relying on case studies, relevant papers, student presentations, and guest lecturers. The ultimate goal of this course is to help you identify and define environmental injustices you see.
