Selected syllabi

Food, Communities and Justice: Geographies of Food, Brandon University. Download the syllabus hereThis course examines how food production has become increasingly globalized and industrialized. Recent alternatives to the industrialization and globalization of food are explored through local food initiatives, food sovereignty, fair trade, and organic food. The course will draw on an extensive and growing geographical literature on food in both developed and developing country contexts.

Seminar in Environmental Issues (GENV 4101), Mount Allison University. Download the syllabus here. In the context of intensifying human impacts on nature, conventional notions of ‘natural resources’ and ‘management’ are becoming increasingly problematic. This course seeks to provide students with the theoretical background to undertake critical analysis of environmental and resource management issues. It will offer an overview of the changing theory and practice of resource management and consider the different types of knowledge that are important to understanding environmental problems.
