Craig Thomas, PhD, MLA, MFA

Tues/Thurs 2-3:20PM: Baldy 110

How have the social sciences (sociology, anthropology, politics, economics, and public policy) and the humanities (literature, religion, history, film, critical theory, ethics, philosophy and educational theory) shaped, and been shaped by, the growing field of sustainability? How do these disciplines integrate with the natural sciences to help solve complex sustainability problems today? This class features guest speakers, field trips and historical and contemporary work by important American authors, artists, thinkers and educators who continue to influence our understanding and application of knowledge in sustainability discourse.
