War and violent conflict are major forces that shape human and more-than-human environments, working on scales as small as the cell and microbe, to as large as the global atmosphere. We can’t fully account for how humans interact with their environments without understanding armed conflict. In this course we’ll study the tremendously complex topic of militarism and environment to explore the intersections of conflict, climate change, and environmental justice in the 21st century. We’ll collaborate with scholars across the world to map the front lines of environmental conflict and ask how to build a peaceful, just, and sustainable world.
