ENG 263LEC Environmental Humanities

Lecture

This course surveys environmentalist writings, from 19th-century touchstone works like Thoreau's *Walden* through contemporary essays, articles, fiction, and poetry. Students will investigate how evolving conceptions of the environment have shaped the formal properties and thematic concerns of literary writing, and then place this writing in the context of debates surrounding climate change, natural disasters, endangered/invasive species, genetic science, and wilderness preservation.
