Contemporary Culture and the Environment

6 ECTs / Semester / English

The Contemporary Culture and the Environment seminar aims at investigating the relationship between culture and environment in contemporary society. Using the discussion of pre-selected materials as the starting point, this seeks to study the role of the environment in present day society and the impact of human action on nature. Students thus develop reflexive discourses about the curricular unit themes and express their understanding of the different and complex ways in which culture and the environment intersect, critically analyzing theory and applying it to case studies.
