Decolonizing the Environmental Discourse
This course examines the concept of environmental justice through a decolonization lens–giving voice to those who have been silenced in the official environmental discourse. Through guest presentations, group work, facilitated discussions, readings, and inclusive teaching strategies students will examine & explore current and past environmental justice cases. Some of the cases include; the Dakota Access Pipeline, Lummi Coal Terminal, San Joquin Valley’s Drinking Water, etc.
