The Program
In this course, students will explore the origins of our American nature writing tradition through a walking and literary tour of England. Students will hone their multi-cultural communication skills, rhetorical listening skills, close reading, analysis, and writing skills as they explore British nature writing traditions, past and present-- and how those traditions gave rise to nature writing and Ecocentrism in the U.S. Students will also learn about various genre conventions, the qualities of rhetorically effective writing through analysis and by composing their own nature writing and place portraits. In addition, students will read, research, analyze, and think critically about ancient and contemporary written alternatives to Anthropocentrism. Finally, we will discuss the future of nature writing in England and the U.S. by reading recent research on how time spent in the “natural” world positively affects cognition and creativity.
