ENV 195-01 - Introductory Special Topic: This Land is Your Land: Agrarian Ethics in the 21st Century

1 credits (Spring)
Aldo Leopold said “… a land ethic changes the role of Homo sapiens from conqueror of the land-community to plain member and citizen of it.” How would human society behave if it observed an ethic based on the health of our communal landscape?   We examine dilemmas faced by those who grow our food. Using the career struggles of the instructor as case study material, students explore a principled reunion of ecology and economics.

Prerequisite: None.
Note: Dates: February 12 to February 28. Short course deadlines apply.
Instructor: Staff
