Fall 2020 Courses
Voices in the Environment: French, Chinese, Spanish (ENVIRON 269T)
Voices in the Environment explores how language and culture impact environmental beliefs, behaviors, and interventions. Through practical and theoretical discussions around case studies, visual texts, and interviews, we will examine global environmental challenges from local perspectives. Guest speakers will help us explore the underlying reasons for different beliefs and behaviors, with the goal of creating appropriate interventions related to sustainability.
This course loosely follows the structure of ENVIRON 201. While students are encouraged to enroll in both courses, concurrent enrollment is not required. Tutorials are taught entirely in the target language. Prerequisite: 4 semesters-level of language study or equivalent. Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
