Geography 311-Economic Geography explores "how economic activity shapes out understanding of human-environment systems. [Students] will examine core economic concepts of production, surplus, labor, exchange of goods and services, and commodities within the context of different economic, political and social systems to better understand the costs and benefits associated with each." The class is cross-listed with environmental studies as ES 311 and uses Take Back the Economy: An Ethical Guide for Transforming Our Communities by JK Gibson-Graham, Jenny Cameron and Stephen Healy.
