COLT 70.07 Environmental Crises & Human Rights

Environmental crises are occurring around the world at a rate never seen before. Lake Chad. Indonesia. The DRC. Martinique. The Niger Delta. These places have become tragically associated with most of the ecological issues threatening our planet. In this course, we will turn to recent texts and media to investigate the extent of rising waters and displacement, drought and exodus, pollution, and deforestation, as such and as linked to human rights, in an attempt to understand the violence of the contemporary crises playing out in locations already plagued with inequalities and human rights violations. In our analysis, we will also consider the rise of climate migration and what it means for the future of these regions, as well as what literature has to offer to represent environmental crises.
