Freshmen, Sophomores, Economics majors then minors, and then
Environmental Studies Minors and Cities majors/minors. This 360
cluster, comprised of courses in philosophy, history (East Asian
Studies), and economics, will look at the many environmental problems
and issues that beset our contemporary world. We will explore the
environment from the perspective of several disciplines: philosophy
(both "Western" and "Eastern"), economics, history, politics, and
natural science. Our readings, class discussion, and student research
will bring these different disciplinary perspectives to bear on
specific environmental questions. Experts in the science, economics,
and politics of these questions will come to campus and visit the
classes. The cluster will concentrate particularly (but not
exclusively) on the environmental problems of China and study how
China is dealing with them. Students and faculty will travel to China
(tentatively March 8-22) to experience the environmental problems
first hand and to meet with leading experts on these issues, both
researchers and officials. Applications due November 6th: https://brynmawr.wufoo.com/forms/360a-preregistration-china-and-the-environment/
