Explores issues related to urban environments and social justice. We will explore the relationship between urban development and the natural environment. We will look at the unequal distribution of environmental benefits, such as green spaces, and burdens, such as toxic waste, within urban environments. We will draw on scholarship and activism from the environmental justice movement to think critically about economic and social justice concerns in urban environments. We will explore questions of policy, design, sustainability, equity, health, and justice with an emphasis on contemporary and historical issues and cases within the United States.  MU Core category: Sustainability and Science. 4 crs.
