GEOG 333 - Geography of Environmental Justice

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: Any GEOG course or consent of instructor
This course describes problems of environmental justice as they affect disadvantaged populations. The course reviews the history of this social movement in the U.S. It then examines studies that link the environmental and civil rights movements in recent years and that describe the major problems of identifying environmental injustice both in categorical terms and as a spatial issue. Special attention is given to spatial measurement issues. Offered alternate years, fall semester.
