HI 109 - Environmental History

This course focuses on the historical relationship between people and the environment.  It draws data from the diverse cultures and geographies of the United States first, and then looks at particular environmental concerns in other nations across time.  Overall the course frames the environment as a global phenomenon affected by international politics and world cultures.  The course will be grounded in the past, but will examine current issues such as global warming, biological prospecting, invasive species, and food production to understand the environment from local and global perspectives.

Note: Meets Historical Reasoning Learning Outcome (HIST) and the Global Engagement Learning Outcome (GLOB)

Four credits.
