Class Notes:
Class Description:
A quick online search may uncover the term resilience applied to very personal issues of trauma and crisis to systems-level changes brought forth by a changing climate, such as heatwaves. Resilience may be somewhat of a current buzzword, but it is a concept with deep roots that cut across disciplines and policy areas. In this course, we will explore together the underpinnings of the concept to interrogate what constitutes or promotes resilience and unpack our understanding of how resilience operates at different levels (individuals to systems) and policy areas (e.g., health, environment, infrastructure, energy). We will examine approaches to resilience planning and policy to assess how they are interpreting and operationalizing different forms of resilience. Resilience is a concept core to many issues at the intersection of social policy, science, emerging technologies, infrastructure, and the environment. This course will prepare each of you with a deeper understanding of resilience and provide the flexibility for you to explore how resilience may apply to your professional goals.
