L82 EnSt 215Introduction to Environmental Humanities3.0 Units
Description:In this environmental humanities seminar we will consider texts illustrating how American citizens evolved in their perception, use, and expectations of the natural world during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, especially but not limited to the practice of agriculture. How did the mandatory short-term goals of health and economic security sought so eagerly by citizens, and supported by evolving technologies, foreshadow the unintended consequences of long-term environmental damage that would contribute to climate change, and how can we understand this using a critical and hopeful lens? Considering contemporary writings on our perception of "environmentalism" will help us nuance our analysis. Topics will include: agrarian democracy; settlement of the Great Plains by immigrant farmers; the Dust Bowl; fragmentation of the Sioux ecosystem. This cultural research will frame our visits to the Tyson Research Center, Washington University's field laboratory in west St. Louis County. Tyson's mission is to provide a living landscape for environmental research and education as a component of Washington University's International Center for Energy, Environment and Sustainability (InCEES). As a class we will meet with faculty researchers (from both science and the humanities) and hear about their work on ecosystem sustainability, that is, thinking long-term for human and environmental health. We will use texts such as: government reports, history, literature, environmental policy and autobiography. This course is for first-year students and sophomore students only.

L82 EnSt 364Field Methods for Environmental Science3.0 UnitsLab Required
Description:This course provides a broad survey of practical and applied methods for environmental field work for site assessments, ecological studies, conservation land management, habitat monitoring, and ecological restoration. A primary focus will be sources and techniques for obtaining and interpreting field data across a range of abiotic, organismal and system/community parameters, with emphasis on hands-on field experience providing students with direct knowledge highlighting the advantages and limitations of various methods. In the process, students will learn about multiple taxonomic and organismal groups and natural community types, and the relationships among these and the physical environment in functional natural systems. Course topics include theory and practice of methods for sampling biotic and abiotic resources, including vegetation, fauna, aquatic systems, stream geomorphology, and soils, as well as using these data for assessments, habitat monitoring, land management decisions, and developing ecological restorations. Students will gain familiarity with responding to issues driving applied environmental science and related fields today, including data quality, sampling design, field techniques, viability and threat analyses, and incorporating field data into multi-scale conservation planning and design work. The course consists of instructor presentations, guest lectures, readings and written response papers, student projects and presentations, classroom discussions, and extensive field exercises and hands-on training. Class logistics: one lecture (1.5 hours) and one lab (5 hours) per week, plus 2-3 all day Saturday field trips (see policy on absences for back-up plan regarding field trips).

L82 EnSt 452International Climate Negotiation SeminarVar. Units (max = 6.0)
Description:This course is a three-credit advanced seminar designed to prepare students to attend and observe annual meetings associated with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as a delegate of Washington University. The course and meetings provide student delegates with a unique educational experience to observe the development of international climate policy through interdisciplinary negotiations and interactions inside the negotiating space. Students see the interaction between climate policy, science and technology as they identify and analyze policy decisions across the international climate regime. The number of students who can attend meetings is limited by the United Nations. We will do our best to have course participants attend either the COP or Subsidiary Body meetings. The COP 25 meeting will be held in Santiago, Chile. Dates are to be determined but it is likely to be in January 2020. The Subsidiary Body meetings will be in Bonn, Germany in June 2020. Enrollment is limited. Indicate your interest by placing yourself on the waitlist and completing an application. All students will be placed on the waitlist upon registration and students will be selected to enroll from the waitlist after all the applications are reviewed. The application will be open March 1 and will be available on the course website https://sites.wustl.edu/wustlcop/. Application review will begin April 12. Interviews will take place between April 16 and April 25, and enrollment decisions will be made by April 26. Participation in the course is possible without traveling to the meetings. The course is currently scheduled for T/Th 11:30 - 1:00.

Home/Ident

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
