Description: The field of Critical Environmental Justice Studies has emerged in recent years to thoroughly interrogate the ways that ability, class, gender, race, and sexuality shape environmental experience globally. Increasingly interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary, Critical EJ Studies aims to build on earlier Environmental Justice foundations to offer a dynamic analysis of the biological and climate crises underway in the twenty-first century. In this course, students will explore the visual archive of Critical EJ Studies, looking back over time and place to understand how art and activism have been utilized to offer alternative histories and possibilities to these issues. Students will have the opportunity to conduct original archival research in this course, centered on their self-designed research project.
