GEOG 620 - Geographies of Environmental Justice
This course examines ongoing environmental justice debates over expertise, access, rights, and compensation, in the context of environmental racism and responses to it. We consider connections between space, place, identity, and justice in contaminated environments. We explore scholarship and activism, and learn about Canadian and international case studies related to resource extraction; manufacturing and industrial processes; waste disposal; access to basic services; trade; and tourism.
