Assistant Professor, Geography, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Entrepreneurial course taught by Professor Chhatre
Conservation of Natural Resources and Entrepreneurship
This course will introduce students to historical and current debates surrounding the concept of conservation, especially as applied to nature and renewable natural resources. Students will engage with diverse perspectives on conservation, drawing on scholarship in philosophy, ecology and environmental sciences, geography and regional planning, economics and business, politics and government, anthropology, sociology, and public policy. The substantive focus of the course aligns perfectly with my past and current research interests, as indicated in several journal articles and one book on the topic I have (co-)authored. This proposal builds on these interests to better incorporate entrepreneurship into my own research through engagement with the relevant issues in my teaching.
