This course introduces students to theory and research methods appropriate to the Environmental Humanities interdisciplinary degree. The course includes a consideration of dominant movements in environmental thought and their impacts on analyses and interpretations, particularly the communicative, philosophical, historical, literary and linguistic legacies that underlie human connections with the environment. Each semester, a single environmental topic will be explored through readings, discussion, and individual and collaborative research, including field experiences. Topics will vary from semester to semester but will focus on issues with relevance to the local region through interdisciplinary dimensions.
