Description: The impacts of environmental turmoil, climate change, toxicity, pollution, biodiversity loss, and more increasingly impact all but rarely equally. To consider environmental justice in this course is to consider these differential impacts (and their relationship to race, gender, ethnicity, economics, region, and other factors) and possible responses and remedies to these inequities with respect to a range of communities and regions through a range of arts, media, cultural documents, and social phenomena.
