Human Dimensions of Environmental Change - GEOGY520 (2019)

This paper examines the increasing risks imposed on human communities by global environmental change such as global warming and the occurrence of so-called natural disasters. The paper establishes a platform for the critical analysis of these processes by introducing students to important theoretical developments including the role of culture-nature dualisms in geography, theories on population-environment relationships, political ecology, new approaches to the study of disasters and the increasingly important concept of vulnerability.
