CO 3420 - The Voice of Nature


Nature was an articulating presence for earlier storytelling cultures. It is mute in modern industrial times. At the beginning of the 21st century we desperately need to rethink our dominant myths of progress and growth and the role of technology, living narratives that vivify our links with the natural world. This course explores our ability to listen to the voice of nature. Students express their ecological identities by investigating the communicative practices of diverse cultures and participating in experiential activities. Topics discussed include hunter‐gatherer life, Buddhism, Native American spirituality, animal rights, and ecopsychology. Credits: 4
