Week 4 Notes: Day 8: February 4th, 2016 Lecture: - Rwanda- small but populous place in Central Africa. About the size of Maryland - Looking at the genocide there, and how there are different scales: locally, and national, and regional. - Resulting in a refugee crisis - Hutu came from the South and the West, and then the Tutsi came from the North and the East. - Hutu and Tutsi had the same religion and language, and they lived in the same area without any boundaries, they were basically combined but different at the same time - The distinction was by class not ethnic group, Tutsi was for people who owned cattle, and Hutu was the peasant class who were farmers. - First person to visit Rwanda was in 1894, by a German - The Belgians decided that the Tutsi were better than the Hutu because they said they were more white - Only tutsi could go to school and get a job, all these rules set by Belgians. - Race is a social construction and not a biological basis. - When 10 peacemakers were killed in Rwanda, the UN removed all the other peacemakers because it was too dangerous. - Key Words: for Rwanda o ICTR(international criminal tribunal for Rwanda) o Interahamwe- militia by Tutsi- given order to start genocide- used machetes no advanced weapons, they set up checkpoints o April 6,1994- presidents plane crashed, the plan to exterminate all tutsi was put in place as soon as this happened. o Convention for the prevention and punishment of the crime of genocide- US was the last nation to sign this, referred to as genocide convention o Hutu- make up the majority of the population o Tutsi- barely a minority with 15% o Twa- constitute 1% of the population, they are considered native of Rwanda Possible Questions: 1. What are the Interahamwe? 2. What was significance of April 6, 1994? Week 4 Notes: th February 9 , 2016 Lecture: - Keywords: o Epistemology- the way you can know about something, a set of standards or tools or practices or disciplines, a whole set of way to make knowledge about something o Ontology- the name for what you assume to exist, we make claims about what exists, and only after making those predictions can we use epistemology to learn about those things. - How do we know nature? What do we mean by nature? o Different epistemological approaches to answer those questions - Key Concepts: o Nature, Society, Technology o Environmental Philosophies o US Environmental movement o Energy and Climate Change o Globalization and Environment - Global Change: the combination of political economic, social, historical, and environmental problems with which human beings across Earth must currently contend. - Ecosystems: community of different species interacting with each other and with the larger physical environment - Nature: a social construction as much as it is the physical universe that includes human beings; concepts of nature reflect the philosophies, belief systems, and ideologies of different people - Society: sum of the inventions, institutions, and relationships created and reproduced by human beings across particular places and times - Technology: artifacts or tools(hammer); processes or activities(steelmaking); know- how (planting seeds) - Purpose of this unit: to recognize how people and nature form complex relationships such that nature is both a bio-physical realm and a social construction
