Canadian Studies Climate Change Courses

Interested in learning about changes in the Arctic? Canadian Studies is offering two interdisciplinary courses this coming Winter Quarter that will expand your knowledge of the Arctic including: climate change from various perspectives and changes in the Arctic environment (taught by visiting Fulbright). See below for course information as well as flyers attached.

Arctic/JSISB 391 or Honors 394C: Climate Change – An International Perspective: Science, At & Activism

MW 1:30-3:20pm | SMI 407
Instructor: Robert Pavia

For the first time in the history of the planet humans are causing changes on a global scale – the Anthropocene. Scientists discovered global climate change, identified its human origins, and are forecasting change to every corner of the globe. There is overwhelming consensus about the facts underpinning our knowledge of climate change but powerful forces are aligned against implementing changes necessary to mitigate climate impacts.

Understanding climate change requires an interdisciplinary approach that considers natural and social sciences, art, and the role of activism. The course begins with the sometimes perplexing science of climate change, in all its disciplines. Interwoven with the science will be discussions of how the Arctic nations and Arctic indigenous peoples are working together to mitigate climate change impacts. But perhaps more interestingly, we will explore how artists and musicians work with scientist to extend the expression of hard facts to intellectual and emotional enrichment. 


Arctic 401: Arctic Issues – The Canadian Arctic Environment

MW 9:30-11:20am | MEB 237

Instructor: Mark Mallory, 2017-18 UW Canada Fulbright Visiting Chair in Arctic Studies

This course will provide an introduction to the extreme world of Arctic terrestrial, aquatic and marine environments and biota, with a focus on Nunavut, a new territory in Canada that lies fully above the treeline.  The course will be broad in topics; discussions will include the physical and ecological setting, food web, key and iconic wildlife species, threats to their health, contaminants, as well as an environmental and ecological perspective on history, peoples, and current issues. Dr. Mallory will provide numerous examples from his nearly 2 decades of continuing work in the region, from air, land and sea.

Winter Quarter Course: Are Do Gooders Doing Good?

The Carlson Center is excited to offer General Studies 344: Are Do Gooders Doing Good? Critical Perspectives on Civic Engagement during Winter Quarter! This course is ideal for
students at any level who have experience with community-based work and who are interested in exploring what it means to do good.

Are Do-Gooders Doing Good? Critical Perspectives on Civic Engagement (General Studies 344A; SLN 22163)

Are you committed to giving back? Trying to make a difference? Want to get more out of your volunteer experience and make a stronger impact in the community? During Winter
Quarter, we invite you to join in a critical reflection on what it truly means to “do good” in today’s social-cultural climate.

General Studies 348 will offer a hands-on opportunity to explore the concept of civic engagement. Students will critically reflect on their own service experiences through the
lens of identity theories, engage with principles of community work, and learn from the experiences of community leaders. In addition to those perspectives, the course will draw
upon current issues/events affecting various communities at large, as well as students’ involvement in service and will weave these together with elements of other academic coursework and future academic/career goals.

The course has a required service-learning component; students are encouraged to utilize current service commitments toward this requirement, though individualized support will
be offered to those looking for a service opportunity. This is a three-credit course that is offered as credit/no credit. Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 3:30-5:20PM in Mary Gates Hall.

Those interested in the course should email engage@uw.edu with questions and/or to request an add code.
