Courses I Teach

  • ENVST 2100 - Introduction to Environment and Sustainability
    This course examines human-environment relations from a variety of disciplines. Through a series of lectures and readings, students will be exposed to a diverse range of research, viewpoints, approaches, and topics associated with environmental and sustainability issues. This class provides a unique opportunity for students to engage the breadth of research and teaching at the University of Utah that addresses human-environment relations. Students will engage a wide range of opinions, be exposed to distinct kinds of intellectual inquiry, and meet faculty from many disciplines. Through lectures and class discussion, we will process this material and fit it into a larger inter-disciplinary context of environmental and sustainability studies.
  • POLS 1100 - U.S. National Government
    This course provides an introduction to American government and politics. The course covers the principles on which the national government rests, the nature of political action in the U.S., and the dynamics of the Congress, Presidency, Judiciary, and Bureaucracy.
  • POLS 3140 / GNDR 3140 - Gender & Politics
    The purpose of this course is to introduce undergraduate students to some of the systematic thinking on gender and politics. It offers a general survey of how women as a group have engaged in politics including: as outsiders through political participation, as insiders in government, and as the subject of policy action. We will consider the effects of gender on electoral behavior and political institutions, as well as the ways in which law, public policy, and politics shape gender relations. Topics include: the mobilization of women into politics through the suffrage movement and the modern women’s movement; the role of gender in shaping public opinion and electoral behavior; public opinion and electoral behavior on gender issues; women’s activities within the political parties; the experiences of women candidates and women elites; and several policy debates. This course will also emphasize the diversity of women’s political experiences.
  • POLS 5322/6322 - Environmental and Sustainability Politics
    This course will examine environmental politics and policy in the United States. We will apply theories from political science, public policy, and other social science disciplines to analyze how values, interests, and institutions shape the processes by which policies are enacted and implemented. We will pay particular attention to public opinion and the related political forces that influence environmental policy. Using a case study approach we will consider a variety of policy issues involving pollution control, access to and management of natural resources, urban design and restoration, and energy development. These case studies will also consider environmental policy in the state and local, national, and international contexts.
  • POLS 5510 - Water Policy & Politics
    This class examines the policy and politics of water, including issues of water pollution/quality; water supply and management; historical perceptions and development; water law and current debates; river restoration; environmental justice; and Native Americans. We will focus mainly on the rules governing how water is used, the politics of water decision-making, and whether or not the rules are effective at providing adequate amounts of clean water for human consumption and ecosystem maintenance. Although the focus of this course will be the American West (west of the 100h meridian), I will bring into discussion—and invite contributions--about water policy dynamics in other parts of the U.S and abroad, where there exists conflict or potential conflict, over water.
