  • Nature and Environmental Writing (May, June 2017)

    Dates:

    May 22 - June 23, 2017.  Class meets all day Tuesday and Thursday.

    Location:

    Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI

    Description:

    What are the spaces of nature? What are the spaces for writing nature? How might the way we map the world within space affect acts of literacy and movement? These are the questions that will frame our investigation of environmental writing practices. This course examines a number of environmental controversies through writing moments that center on justice, and what it means to make knowledge about “nature.” On the agenda are historical texts like Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. Rather than reading Carson in isolation, we’ll read around her by engaging with the texts of her critics and considering the effect that this controversy has had on the development of environmental genres. The end goal is to contemplate the larger rhetorical ecologies in which environmental writing lives.  3 credits.
