The course in Icelandic Society and Environment explores the context of society, politics, history, economy, environment, and natural resources in Iceland with regard to both land and sea. As a developed, resource-rich, remote, and sparsely populated island in the N-Atlantic Ocean, Iceland has distinct aspects. For example, the country’s diverse geology and homogenous demography, which are not easily comparable to neighboring nations. Emphasis is placed on exploring Iceland’s international image with regard to the environment and natural resources. This includes how the country’s nature may be linked to the self-image of the modern Icelander, nature as a source of nationalism, and how this has manifested regarding utilization vs. conservation of natural resources. -
