Course Description

Environmental Injustice, ANTHRO 25A

In “Environmental Injustice” — UCI Anthro 25A — we study explosive disasters at chemical plants and refineries, air and water pollution, and the effects of climate change — and how all of these impact human health and worsen social inequalities. We also study how people have become environmental activists to find and advocate for solutions.

Students work in research groups to build case studies of environmental injustice in communities across California. Students’ case study research is published online so that it can be a resource to people in the communities studied — and included in students’ resume and research portfolios. See students’ earlier research and learn more about the course here. The Canvas space is here
