Contemporary Culture and Environment

6 ECTs / Semester / English

The Contemporary Culture and the Environment seminar aims at investigating the relationship between culture and environment in contemporary society. Taking the discussion of pre-selected material as its starting point, the unit studies the role of the environment in present-day society and the impact of human action on nature.
Students thus develop reflexive discourse about the curricular unit theme and develop an understanding of the different and complex ways in which culture and environment intersect and then critically analyse the theory and apply it to case studies.
