WORLD VIEWS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

OED1WE

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this environmental studies subject students are introduced to some of the ideas and cultural beliefs that have shaped the way Australians perceive and interact with natural environments, and explore the implications of these perceptions for their practice. Students investigate aspects of traditional western European belief systems, as well as current developments in environmental studies that seek to critically reflect on human-nature relationships. Practical trips are designed to enable students to analyse how underlying environmental worldviews have shaped the diverse ways in which different groups have responded to natural environments through action observation and evaluation. This subject contains a compulsory four day walking trip.
