Credits: 4
This course engages the multifaceted dynamics of power, science, narratological representation and social change necessary for engaging our climate crisis. Seldom brought into the same conversation, the post-colonial imperatives for resisting colonial and imperial violence can open important pathways for the sorts of imaginative counter-narratives needed for flipping the ineffective environmental scripts that either paralyze us by their enormity or sink us into too small of scale individual choices too minuscule for any lasting impact.
