About

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.
