Skrócony opis:

Environmental crisis is posing a growing challenge to established ways of life, politics, and social sciences. During the course, various responses to this challenge will be discussed and analysed. We shall look at how the relationship between nature and society is being (re)framed within social theories, sciences and policies. Special attention will be paid to controversies (GMO, energy sources, carbon trade), different currents of political ecology, as well as the framing of the global warming by governments, businesses and social movements. At the end of the course we shall look at the changing relationship between humans and non-human animals.
