|ENS 311 - ECCE: Global Change in Local Places|
This course will examine environmental transformations in a global perspective. In doing so, we will seek to understand how changes in global social systems and environmental systems are interrelated. A major focus will be on the processes of "globalization" in the modern world system, and examining the ways in which it relates to environmental issues, with an emphasis on social justice. The course will help us to develop a deeper understanding of the ways that global social processes affect diverse communities throughout the world by focusing on environmental change, and in return how these changes in ecological systems affect communities and social life. We will explore a number of environmental transformations and locations developing an interdisciplinary analysis that draws on the social and natural sciences. Course Information: This course fulfills an Engaged Citizenship Common Experience requirement at UIS in the area of Global Awareness.
