Course Description: This course examines case studies in and around Buenos Aires where environmental contamination creates human health and social justice concerns. It identifies the relationship between industrial development (e.g. agriculture, mining, and manufacturing), the development and use of synthetic chemicals, and the improper management and disposal of industrial waste that has caused significant ecological risk, human suffering, and illness. This course explores the concept of environmental justice in the context of culture and society both within Argentina and beyond. It also analyzes common factors worldwide that contribute to improper waste disposal and disproportionate impacts to vulnerable segments of society.
