This course will cover the overall topic of climate change and human migration, and contextualize our research on this topic. Also included are different short documentaries about issues affecting indigenous communities confronting this issue from what is called Alaska and Louisiana today. These will provide case studies to anchor our broader global discussion and inform our discussion of the social justice implications of global climate change migration.
