EJ Futurism & The Urban

This three-part class provides a space to play with ideas by employing scenarios and vision work that connect people and place while exploring the challenges and possibilities of constructing environmentally and socially just cities. By bringing urban studies, urban political ecology, and critical race theory into relationship with popular media, we will explore the visual and spatial politics of real and imagined cities.

All movies discussed will be accessed through Netflix.

Environmental Justice Futurism

  • Is the necessary pivot from the fight against an environmental dystopia to an intentional move toward creating a practical environmental utopia.
  • Is underpinned by the academic frameworks of decolonization, critical race theory, and feminist theory.
  • Wrestles with the possibilities of environmentally and socially just futures and opens up the potential for socially just cultural productions that are grounded in understandings of sovereignty and self-determination.
