ENGL 4006 Eco-Fictions: World Economy and the Meaning of Nature (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

The calls for climate justice and environmental ethics, though motivated by climate science, emerge largely from our everyday experiences with our environment. Here imaginative works of fiction and non-fiction, poetry, art, and cultural history provide inspiration. By focusing on the environment as a global (not merely an American) issue we shall study classic and contemporary works from around the world that raise awareness about the significance of human action upon the planet. The course will include a variety of genres and media such as film, art, theory, fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction.
