COURSE DESCRIPTION

What is "The Environment"? How are some "environments" rendered as "problems" in Environmental Studies? How do we understand the roots of global "environmentalisms" in terms of difference: among persons, between groups, and with respect to nonhumans? Starting with the idea that what is "environmental" are relations of the human and nonhuman, course offers a global perspective on environmental humanities, introducing fields like philosophy, ethics and religion, literature, fine arts, history, and anthropology. Framing foundational Anglo-American perspectives like those "nature" and the "post-human," students master key skills such as comparison to answer fundamental questions about diverse environmental experience and expression worldwide.
