Course Description: 

In this course, we look at human-nature relations as both actively socially constructed and as deeply materially experienced, focusing on the global manifestations and reverberations of environmental communication and examining international, regional, local, and subculture eco-discourses. The class especially investigates cultural discourses that might support more sustainable or restorative human-nature relations. Critical and creative exploration as well as out-of-the-classroom experiences in the wider community will be central to the learning experience.
