|Subject Overview:|| |
Our study of ecology-environmentalism begins with a consideration of the 'intellectual flavour' and the 'sociopolitical context' of environmentalist-ecological practice at the beginning of the 21st century. Students are introduced to a form of analysis that refuses to frame ecological-environmental issues by assuming that nature and culture are ineluctably separate. One assessment choice allows you to experience first hand the day-to-day life of environmental management. You will be offered support in carrying out a small research study of an environmental organisation of your choice.
