Environmental Justice and Climate Change. Same as LALS 495 and MUSE 400. This course examines the environmental justice movement and its connection to climate change. It scrutinizes larger systems of power and privilege that produce unjust environmental and climate conditions putting people of color, immigrants, and low-income earners at greater risk. Case studies from Latinx Chicago, Puerto Rico, the U.S./Mexico border and other localities will be used to examine intersections between ECJ, im/migration, and surveillance while exploring the role of museums in facilitating deeper understanding on this topic. Same as ANTH 494 and MUSE 420.
