ELP 548 Global Political Ecology

To study the connections between political, economic, social, and ecological issues, we explore the following themes: the impact of globalization on human and non-human communities; the relationship between poverty and environmental degradation; the distribution of resource use and commodification in the global North and global South; and our own relationships to food systems. Students apply these concepts through a multi-media study and presentation of a commodity in terms of its production, distribution and consumption.
