A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍nalytic Essay Prompt The first unit of this course is centered on the concept of “planetary health”—the notion that human health and the health of our planet are intimately linked. We began by considering our present moment of interrelated crises and how the coronavirus pandemic is connected to the larger climate crisis. We then looked at some of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic climate change and its impacts on human health. The last few weeks we turned to focus on particular environmental health determinants—infectious disease, extreme weather, and pollution—in order to shed light on how social, political, and economic conditions affect or even engender these “natural” phenomenon, sometimes to catastrophic ends. The second unit will delve into these social determinants even further in order to get at the root causes of our current environmental crisis. For your first paper, please choose two texts we covered in Unit 1 and construct an analysis addressing the following prompt: Outline the relationship between human health and the natural environment in the texts of your choosing. Pick one or two concrete examples that speak to this interface (., the cor‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍onavirus pandemic or some other instance of infectious disease outbreak; hurricanes, wildfires or some other extreme weather event; a particular form of environmental pollution; etc.) and identify the social, economic, political, environmental, and/or biological factors that determine human health in your example(s). What is the relationship between the “natural” world and society or culture in the example(s) you’ve chosen? How are they separate and/or co-determined? Finally, consider what the implications of your analysis are for how we approach healing both human and planetary health. [Originally, this was meant to be a comparative analysis assignment. However, upon reflection, Unit 1 is not terribly suited for that kind of assignment. In other words, you do not need to “compare” the two texts of your choosing, but a strong analytic essay will likely consider how the texts overlap (or depart) in addressing your particular argument.] Submission details: -4-5 pages, double spaced, Times New Roman 12 point font, 1” margins, .doc or .docx format -Name your document using your last name and “Paper 1.” For example: “Montalvo-Quiñones_Paper 1” -Deadline: Frid‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ay, February 25th by 11:59pm EST
