Cíle předmětu
The course will be taught, in English, by Christos Zografos, PhD, Institute of Environmental Science & Technology, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB), Spain.

The main topic of the course will be Environmental Change and Governance.

The course explores some key ways in which power influences environmental change and governance, from an environmental social science perspective. The classes draw on the disciplines of political ecology, ecological economics, and environmental history that explain how environmental change is produced and what are its social implications. The purpose is to develop a critical understanding of environmental change and the relevance of power and politics in incurring this.

Learning outcomes:
After the end of the module, students should be in a position to: 1. Explain how power and politics are useful for understanding and studying environmental change
2. Use several models of how power operates to explain the role politics play in producing environmental change
Osnova
  • Course structure:
  • Most classes, i.e. classes 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 , are based on one reading (i.e. journal article or book chapter) done by students before the class. Students will answer a question (max. 500 words) based on the reading, email their answers to the course tutor until 2 hours before the class, and bring their answer in class where some of them will be 2 asked to present their answers. This will be followed by a 15-20 minutes class discussion on the question, the topics it touches upon and the issues it raises, which will be based on student answers to the question. The class is complemented by either a classroom activity or a more ‘traditional’ lecture format in which the tutor explains further points related to the topic and concludes with a summary of main points raised with the class.
  • Class 1 is an introductory class, Class 2 is a conventional lecture given by the course instructor, and Class 9 involves watching a documentary in the classroom and then discussing it; students are not required to read a reading and answer an assignment question for any of those two classes. Class 5 is a student ‘open clinic’ session, during which the course instructor will provide feedback to students (for details see ‘Class 5’ below).
  • The following is a programme of class sessions:
  • Introduction
  • Ecological distribution conflicts
  • Green materialism
  • The power of structures
  • ‘Open clinic’ session
  • The power from within
  • Incomplete dominations: post-structuralism
  • The agency of nature
  • The force of nature

Metody hodnocení
The student evaluation tool– 75% of final mark – will be one essay (3000 words) that students will hand in after the end of the course; results will be communicated to students by e-mail. On the last day of the course, each student will present their essay-project plans in a ten minute power point presentation to the class, which will be followed by five-minutes Q+A feedback. The idea of this presentation is for students to receive comments from the tutor concerning their planned essay. You can either write an individual essay or form a group of a maximum of two students who will write one essay. In the case of a group (i.e. two students) essay, the students will equally share the overall mark of the essay. This means that if, for example the essay is marked as ‘c’ in the ECTS scheme, then both students who have written the essay will be awarded a ‘c’ mark for that essay.
