Course Description

"This course presents a dialogue between postcolonial and environmental studies using interdisciplinary perspectives. It draws on wide-ranging material (from history, literary fiction, photography, documentary film, video games, and environmental justice movements) to confront, globally, the major issues at the forefront of environmentalism in postcolonial and indigenous contexts. We will examine the different ways in which histories and presents of empire, colonialism, extractive capitalism, and uneven globalization bear violent human and environmental costs. We will also explore interventions made by anti-colonial and indigenous artists, writers, and activists in re-imagining human-environment relationships and shared climate futures."
