The Green New Deal: Origins, Aims, and Implications for U.S. Climate Politics
*Winter A* In this 7-week seminar, we will examine the Green New Deal as both a political symbol and set of policy priorities at the national, state, and local levels. Some emphasis will be placed on critically evaluating the role it has played or could play, in the 2020 Presidential election and its advantages and disadvantages over other efforts to mobilize climate action. Readings and topics are likely to be updated to reflect ongoing development and politics around the Green New Deal.
