ES 435 - Globalization and Environmental Sustainability (4 Cr.)

(Formerly ES 335)
This course explores the international dimensions of environmental issues, including the effect of economic globalization on the environment and globalization of environmental conservation. The course is grounded in histories of globalization, particularly as a process of uneven development. We will explore the rise of “sustainable development”, a term that links economic globalization and global conservation. By studying the ongoing linkages between globalization, environment, and inequality, students will better understand why mainstream environmentalism fails to achieve sustainability. Prerequisite: ES 230 . Variable semesters. Billo.
