Instructor: Heather Bedi
Course Description:
Cross-listed with ENST 311-03. This class surveys the energy landscape of our carbon-centered civilization.

We will examine how energy associated risks and benefits are managed across people and places. The contemporary social and political landscape for global energy demand and extraction provides the foundation for the class. Analysis of individual and university-wide energy consumption will allow for localized reflection on course themes. Drawing from examples in India and the United States, we will explore development and justice considerations associated with natural resource extraction for energy purposes. A review of the social, economic, and health impacts for people directly impacted by energy procurement and transport will provide further lenses to explore justice concerns. Political and scientific efforts to improve the sustainability of energy extraction will also be analyzed. The class is structured to be accessible to students across disciplines.
