About the Course

The aim of this course is to critically examine key concepts of environmental economic theory, through the use of historical analysis. For this purpose both case-studies on micro level and comparative measures of global change are used. The development of small scale manual production for local consumption to large scale energy-intensive production for inter-regional and global markets put significant stress on energy, infrastructure and institutional regimes. This motivates that the use and conflicts around natural resources are given special attention in long-run historical analysis of environmental history.
