SOCI 368 - Toxic Futures: From Social Theory to Environmental Theory


1 unit(s)
(Same as ENST 368  and INTL 368 ) The central aim of this class is to examine the foundations of the discourse on society and nature in social theory and environmental theory to explore two questions. The first question is how does social theory approach the construction of the future, and the second question is how has this construction informed the present debates on the impact of industrialization, urbanization, state-building and collective movements on the environment? In this context, the class focuses on how social theory informs different articulations of Environmental Thought and its political and epistemological fragmentation and the limits of praxis, as well as its contemporary construction of alternative futures.

One 2-hour period.

Not offered in 2020/21.
