Dear colleagues: I convinced the sustainability studies program at my 
school to engage urban and environmental justice issues ... and now I 
find myself signed up to teach a 3-week (8 sessions) module on 
sustainable cities from an anthropological perspective (note to self: 
think twice before sharing your good ideas with the world). Has anyone 
out there taught something similar, or have you read anything that would 
be useful (and accessible for undergrads: it's a 200-level class)?  With 
3 weeks there's only so much I can do. Some of the topics that interest 
me are: sustainable economies, food/farming/gardens/CSAs, garbage, 
housing ... I've started to sift through the sustainable cities and 
environmental justice soc/anthro lit, but it never hurts to accumulate 
more resources.
Thanks in advance.
