Welcome! This semester we will be exploring a variety of aspects of human-environment interactions. I use the word “exploring” deliberately. The topic of human-environment interactions is vast, and we will be only scratching the surface in this course. I hope to provide you with a framework you can refer to in thinking about human-environment interactions and give you an entry point into the topic. Beyond that, we will be exploring together, and I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to dig in to aspects that most interest you.
