LARTS 370 — Perfect Storms: Environmental Literature, Ethics, and Politics

3 credits
Fall
Anthony Lioi

The extent of today’s environmental crisis is unprecedented, and planetary in scale. This course examines the politics of ecology through the literature and film this crisis has produced. We will examine ideas of nature across contemporary global cultures; the environmental history of New York City; key cases in environmental ethics, including water pollution, food production, mass extinction of species, and global climate change; and popular movements for environmental change in Japan, India, Kenya, and Russia.
