Students in this Civic Liberal Arts course study and become active participants in a growing national movement that connects art and ecology. The course explores collaborations between artists and environmental and social scientists—at field stations and other sites of place-based ecological study—to support artistic creation that advances environmental stewardship and ecological literacy. Through practical research and engagement with people (artists, scientists, conservationists, and citizen scientists), places (parks and field stations), artwork and data, students consider the current state and future potential of this transdisciplinary field. This seminar+ course meets during the first half of the semester, and includes trips to sites, events and exhibits outside of regular class time.
