Course Description

This ethical values seminar will engage books (or other media) that deal with the relationship between human beings and the environment. The seminar will consider recent works addressing modern concerns in environmental thought. Potential subject categories include climate change (hope or despair); the perils and possibilities of the Anthropocene; “post-human” anxieties; and race, class and the environment. We might also make room for at least one selection from the canonical literature on the environment (e.g., Aldo Leopold’s “Sand County Almanac,” Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring,” Terry Tempest Williams’ “Refuge”). We invite nominations throughout the summer from students who are thinking of registering for the seminar next fall.
