New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge V.
General Learning Community Course Description: This learning community will be an introductory exploration of basic economic principles and environmental issues and their intersections. It will provide a theoretical Macroeconomic framework for the discussion. Examples will be drawn from current environmental and sustainability issues where appropriate. We will advance philosophic discussion on contemporary issues of sustainability, based on Teresa Brennan's critical work "Exhausting Modernity: Grounds for a new Economy" (NY: Rout ledge, 2000). We will be examining sustainable and nonsustainable practices as they have been culturally and historically developed. The course will also be a critical examination into values as they organize and / or antagonize natural ecosystems.
