I hope this emails finds you in good spirits. I wanted to send information about my upcoming course in the Department of American Indian Studies—Decolonizing the Environmental Discourse.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course examines the concept of environmental justice through a decolonization lens—giving a voice to those who have been silenced in the official environmental discourse. Through guest presentations, group work, facilitated discussions, readings, and inclusive teaching strategies students will examine & explore current and past environmental (in)justice cases.
The UofW Landscape Architecture Dept. has several great offerings, open to all, this coming Spring, Summer and Autumn Quarters 2017. There is Canada, China,
