AFST 367 - Black Nature Writers


Fall or Spring (3) McLendon (College 200, ALV)

Exploration of how Black writers have imagined a cultural relationship to nature through poetry, fiction, non-fiction, visual and performance arts.  Within these various artistic contexts, students will study the intersections of nature and culture in a variety of landscapes-wilderness or the "wild," pastoral/antipastoral, urban and suburban-while also considering some of the themes and debates in the field of ecocriticism. "Black" is used here as a term more globally inclusive of people of African descent across the diaspora. (This course is anchored in the ALV domain, and also considers aspects of the CSI and NQR domains.)
