ENVR 360 - Equity and the Outdoors

3 Credit(s)

This course will introduce students to the concept of the “adventure gap,” which will illuminate the reality that individuals hailing from minority, indigenous, LGBTQIA, disabled and/or middle- and lower-class communities, among other marginalized communities, are underrepresented in outdoor recreation. In this course, we will investigate the ways in which majority communities have excluded marginalized individuals from the arena of outdoor and adventure recreation. We will, moreover, attend to shifting trends in contemporary outdoor recreation, wherein minority recreationalist and athletes are carving out a space for themselves in the able-bodied, white-male-dominated realm of outdoor recreation.

Prerequisite(s): ENVR 110 .
