Spring Semester Sophomore Choice

In this course we will look at historical and contemporary writings (blogs, poems, hybrid writings, science writing, novels, essays) that discuss human relationships with and responsibilities toward the world we live in. From "eden" to "nature" to "environment" to "resource" to "anthropocene"-- we will consider how we humans imagine earth, and our place on earth. We will ask how our ideas around race, gender, class, and globalism impact how we imagine our place on earth. We will become better-informed about the challenges and crises of this moment in time. And, most importantly, we will ask ourselves how we each want to write about, think about, talk about, and advocate for earth, as humans on earth.
