GSP 362 - Climate Change And Society

Description: Using a critical geography perspective, this course explores the social, political, and cultural factors that collectively shape how society understands and responds to climate change. We will trace climate science from its beginning to present day, as well as consider social construction arguments that challenge climate science. We will investigate how cultural aspects influence our understanding of climate change, identify the ideological positions of supporters and deniers, analyze current policies and politics, investigate differential climate vulnerability, and explore and critically analyze actions proposed to meaningfully address challenges climate change poses to society. Letter grade only.
