Environment and Society in Africa

0300L [CRN: 23775]

This seminar will actively examine contemporary environmental issues in Africa. The African setting is a key site for the world's environmental challenges and polices, with a large number of highly visible and valued flora, fauna, and ecosystems. At the same time, Africa nations are severely pressed with competing social issues: poverty, economic development, health, refugees. How can these be reconciled? What roles do the many actors play? This course is multidisciplinary in orientation and broad in scope geographically. Seminar discussion admits a variety of perspectives. Readings span a wide variety of approaches. Enrollment limited to 20 first year students. S/NC. FYS
