ENVA 310 - The Commons: Land, Air and Water (4)
This course lays out some of the critical
questions involving definitions, histories and mythologies having to do with
the concept of “the commons” such as land, water and air. At the center of the
course is the intellectual history of the notion of the “commons” and how this
affects our general understanding of resources we all hold and share in common.
The course engages in a multi-disciplinary inquiry involving fields including
economics, politics, history, theology and religious studies, ecology, philosophy,
geography, and psychology. Prerequisite: ENVA 109.
