New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

GEOG 80.12 Climate, Natural Disasters, and Environmental History

This course explores the politics of natural disaster in a global historical perspective. We will begin by studying different logics under which humans have worried that 'natural' disasters might be manmade, focusing on recent scholarship that argues that social inequalities shape the impacts of disaster. We will then consider the political processes by which events have come to be recognized as environmental disasters. Finally, we will analyze the politics of disaster in our changing climate.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
