Credits: 4

[Track C] Plastic is a ubiquitous material that has recently become a central focus of environmental concern. But how did we get here? How was plastic developed and what consequences does its rapid expansion have on our culture, politics, environments and bodies? This course will address plastic through the lens of environmental humanities, drawing on feminist and queer theory to understand plastic's importance in contemporary culture. We will also spend a significant amount of time doing hands-on workshops.
