War and the Environment
This project will attempt to serve as a cursory overview of many of the issues arising from interactions between war and the environment (defined as both our natural and built surroundings). The choice to present these issues in the form of a short art film was made in order to reach out to a non-academic audience and to give viewers a sense of what living in a war-torn environment is actually like. This work is meant to raise ethical issues, stimulate the senses and to provide information in an accessible format. Project Mentor: Dennis Ryan, Community and Environmental Planning, UW. Advisors: Karen Litfin, Political Science, UW, and David Biggs, Environmental History, University of California, Riverside.
