Writing the Environment

Spring 2020

Taught By: Elaine Savory

Section: L

CRN: 7201

Credits: 0

This course takes "writing" to mean all kinds of writing, though the major texts will be fiction or poetry. But all our texts include reference to environmental issues. Our concerns are both with content and with aesthetic forms which our writers have chosen to make environmental issues more conscious in the imaginations of their audience. This Elaine Savory, the lead lecturer, will be joined by five colleagues, each delivering one guest lecture relevance to a particular text: Bhawani Ventkataraman, (chemistry) Jess Irish (design), Davida Smyth (biology), Aaron Jakes (history) and Mark Larrimore (religious studies). Thus this course practices an innovative environmental pedagogy and is of great importance as a foundation for environmental studies of all kinds. [This ULEC is in category 1, Tools for Social Change.]
