Welcome to American Ecologies with Todd Tietchen

American notions of progress and growth have long been synonymous with resource depletion and the destruction of wilderness. The time has clearly come to reconsider these foundational notions, along with the devastating activities they continue to authorize, though changing course in part requires that we understand the perspectives and motivations that got us to this critical moment. That will be the goal of this seminar, best described as a comparative history of ideas about ecology and environmental justice, spanning from the 19th century to the present.





Goal of this Library Guide

This guide offers links to some of the course reading, support for research assignments, and links to related reading on the topics. The search widgets embedded here will take you to results from the UML library catalog. There are video tutorials which explain how to limit and filter your searches to get what you need.
