HIST 421(G)- Seminar in Global Environmental History
HIST 421(G)- Seminar in Global Environmental History

Star number: 49814
Online Course
First Four-Week Summer Session
June 3 - June 28, 2019

This course will examine thematic case studies of the interaction between humans and the natural environment during the last several centuries with a major focus on the 20th century. Although this course examines world history, it will specifically treat globalization and modernization from an environmental perspective. Students will analyze this reciprocal relationship between humans and the natural environment and how and why it has changed over time. In addition, we will study the impact that the environment itself has had on the history of human societies. Evolving environmental public policy as well as the conservation and the environmental movements will receive ample attention.
