Environmental Justice in the Caribbean

Anth 3204, Phil 2294

Course Instructors: Chris Begley & Peter Fosl

Location: St. Vincent, St. Lucia

Course Description:  Students engage environmental justice in theory and practice through an
examination of the academic and popular literature, analyses of the narratives created around issues
like climate change, culminating in an immersive and first-hand look at these issues in two Caribbean
contexts in which communities experience these issues directly and acutely. Approaching the topic from
both a social science and humanities perspective, this travel course comprehensively examines and
complicates various aspects of environmental justice. Students travel to the Caribbean islands of St.
Lucia and St. Vincent, contextualizing these issues through listening to and discussing these issues with
community members representing tourism, fishing industry, manufacturing industry, environmental and
social justice groups, and government.
