In our contemporary moment, human-driven climate change continues to disproportionately affect working class communities of color, devastate animal and plant life, and threaten indigenous ways of life. This course critically examines the relationships between migration and the environment, focusing on social and political forces that shape human/nonhuman movement and the natural world. How do cultural works centering marginalized communities reveal systemic inequities and imagine more sustainable relationships with land and water? We will consider how literary and visual narratives can inspire and reflect on social movements at the intersection of racial, migrant, and environmental justice. Students will have the opportunity to participate in independent research and creative projects.
