Environmental Justice: Course Description

Examine the policy and societal reactions to claims made by environmental groups focusing on perceived injustice and unfairness. Those topics are addressed in this online review of a seminar course taught by Professor JoAnn Carmin. The class content mainly focused on United States issues, but some attention was centered on other global issues and viewpoints. Additionally, current and emerging topics were also evaluated throughout the seminar. During the course, students participated in critical analysis of conceptual and concrete topics of environmental justice. These OpenCourseWare materials were used in the MIT on-campus Urban Studies and Planning department course, 'Environmental Justice.'

A comprehensive reading list and students' response papers are included in the free online course. If you would like to use this OpenCourseWare, visit this environmental justice course page.
