As part of its contribution to pedagogy, and in collaboration with the NYU Abu Dhabi Office of Global Education, GEHW’s Kunda Dixit and Sophia Kalantzakos have designed two J-term classes for NYUAD students. Held in January 2023, these courses—“The Media, Climate and other Calamities” and “The Himalayas: Geopolitics and Ecology of Melting Mountains”—led students on a deep dive into environmental studies, the relationship between climate change and geopolitics, and media coverage of the Himalayan climate crisis. Students also traveled to Nepal on a regional trip for topical excursions, combining experiential and classroom learning.
