American Wilderness

Listed in: English, as ENGL-01

Faculty

Robert T. Hayashi (Section 05)

Description

This course will explore the concept of wilderness in American culture.  Americans have portrayed the less tamed region of the American landscape in a variety of ways:  as a hostile space full of evil, as a rugged frontier that shapes individuals into Americans, and as a protected sanctuary for endangered species.  In this class, we will focus on writings that explore the range of definitions and responses to the nation’s wild spaces.  Students will explore these issues in class discussions about the texts and in writing assignments that analyze and critique the readings and our own definitions of what makes a place “wild.”

Limited to 15 students.  Fall semester.  Professor Hayashi.
