CAST 339 - Indigenous Activism, Environmental Justice, and the State

FC SSCI CD WINT
4 credits
This course examines the intersectional scope of Indigenous environmental activism within the broader context and histories of Indigenous sovereignty and decolonial movements in North America. We will examine the centrality of environmental activism to Indigenous sovereignty and treaty rights movements and their relationship to corporate capitalist land appropriation and resource extraction, gender- and race-based violence, and the role of the settler colonial state. The course centers Indigenous frameworks of political resurgence, politics of decolonization, and visions for an ecologically just and emancipatory alternative to the destructive logics of the settler state.

Prerequisites: ENVS 201.
