Spring course: AIS 475B Decolonizing the Environmental Discourse

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. Some of the cases include; the Dakota Access Pipeline, Lummi Coal Terminal, Flint, Michigan, Uranium Mining in Navajo Nation, etc.
