HIST 302 - Global Toxic History (TR)

Focuses on the themes of contamination, waste, and toxic exposure in the modern world, with the goal of understanding environmental health issues in historical context. What political, economic, and social forces have contributed to the prevalence of contamination? Why have some communities suffered disproportionately? How have people in the past identified and coped with toxic danger, and how have they fought against the contamination of their regions, cities, homes, and bodies? In the face of mounting global challenges of toxicity and contamination today, students consider what lessons might be found in these past struggles. (TR)
