Courses: Global Environmental History (HISTH311B01)
This intensive reading course examines the environmental history of the world from prehistoric times to the present. Less a study in the narrative of the global past, participants will approach the interactions between humans and the nonhuman natural world through a series of topics. We will examine indigenous cultures and environmental change, invasive species, colonialism and changes to global ecosystems, industrial revolutions and questions of pollution, transnational conservation and preservation, war and the environment, and the rise of global ecology.
