HUMN101 Pop Culture and the Environment

What is the role of popular culture in society? Does it have the capacity to provoke social change? These are some of the questions students will consider in this class. Students will examine several pop culture artifacts from a global context to discuss how the works use a variety of strategies for understanding, making visible, and at times influencing environmental social change. Finally, students will consider how these artifacts relate to nation, history, gender, class, and sexuality. Through discussions and multimedia activities, students will grapple with interesting and challenging questions and debates around the role popular art plays in influencing the public’s opinion(s) about climate change and other sustainability issues.
