ENST 103 Intro to Environment & Culture

In order to think critically about Environmental Studies, this course will ask you to question how you describe, explain, and relate to nature through language, ideology, and media. To do this we will examine conceptions of nature drawn from the Humanities: philosophy, religion, literature, and art. An understanding of these disciplines will help us gain insight into contemporary environmental debates. The class will examine some of the following questions: What is our relationship to nature? How does nature have value? How has religion contributed to our conceptions of nature? How has English as a language and literary tradition evolved different ways of expressing our relationship to the natural world? Have recent environmental activists articulated a compelling rhetoric? Links to themes of environmental justice, science of the critical zone, and sustainability, connecting this course to the other two introductory courses for the Environmental Studies Program.
