AFST 367 - Black Nature Writers

Credits: (3)
College Curriculum: COLL 200
Domain (Anchored): ALV
Domain (Reaching Out): CSI, NQR
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.
