ENV 222 - Environmental Literature


4 credit(s)
Environmental Literature aims to critically examine our relationship to nature through the study of major American nature writers. We will consider each writer’s ability to generate environmental thought (historically, politically, philosophically) and to survey how nature writing as a genre has taken its current form. The course hopes to acknowledge and challenge current assumptions on nature such as how wilderness has shaped the American imagination and even how labeling nature as “Mother Earth” implies a great deal of how we perceive and receive nature now. Also listed as ENGL 222 
Core Requirement(s): Counts as Core requirement: Analyzing and Interpreting Texts.
