S20C11 Key Works in Environmental Literature

This course will investigate the relationships humans build with the non-human world through great works of literature. The chosen readings and course assignments will ask us to interpret literary texts as arguments about the value of human and non-human environments and their interaction. Our goal is to stimulate and complicate our thinking about this interaction and to improve our reading, conversing, and writing about literary texts, the natural world, and the kind of person you're building with the non-human environment. We'll write and share with one another informal responses to course readings, and conclude by using the readings to inspire, create, and present our own environmental literacy narrative to one another.

Michael Moghtader is an associate professor and academic advising coordinator for JMU's Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies Program. Since 2003, he has researched, taught courses, and read widely in American environmental humanities. He lives in Harrisonburg, VA, with two busy Border collies.
