HUMA 222 Nature and Environmentalism in U.S. Culture


This course explores the relationship between humans and the non-human natural world, emphasizing popular conceptions of nature in American culture and the way in which the very notion of ?nature? itself is a profoundly human conception. We can never really know the natural world ?out there.? Rather the natural world that we seek to understand, even conserve and protect, can only ever be understood through the lens of our social and cultural imagination. What are the socio-cultural manifestations of nature, and how do these manifestations affect the uses and/or abuses of nature in American society?
