CMMU 148 The Problem with Solutions

"Solutionism" encourages college students to tackle the world "grand challenges" in areas such energy and resources, food and agriculture, education and literacy, or global health, with "innovative" technologies or program design. Rarely, however, are they encouraged to learn more about the problems they are trying to solve. Course examines contemporary solutionism, with a specific focus on agriculture and food, in order to recognize and understand its contexts, cultures, and consequences for social and ecological justice.
