“Sketching” Environmental Injustices: Collaborative Pedagogies and Case Study Research During COVID-19 (Kaitlyn Rabach)

Text

How do we teach students about the complex terrain of environmental problems today? In our Environmental Injustices (EiJ) course students collaboratively produce three case studies on fast, slow, and combo disasters to research how environmental hazards compound with structural racism, COVID-19, and economic precarity in California communities. Case studies are organized around 10 questions and supporting “sketches” (Fortun 2015) that provide students a framework to analyze environmental hazards, community actors/assets, local and extra-local actions, and data/research priorities. In this talk, I’ll discuss various “sketches” and how they are used to help students think critically about EiJ problems and solutions today.
