Contents

This course will lay out the theoretical foundations of degrowth, surveying various contributions from various schools of thought. We will discuss writings of the French autors writing in the field of untiutilitarianism, crítics of development and progress (Latouche, Aries, Mauss.), as well as the conceptual foundations of degrowth related to the notions of voluntary simplicty, ecology, deepening democracy, decoloniality, social and biophysical límits to growh. The course will include interactive and deliberative workshops as well as field visits where some of the theoretical concepts studied in class are used as a source of inspiration for practical applications.
