Spring 2017 American Literature Course: Nature Writing: Intermediate/High-Intermediate Section

Beautiful, mysterious, and dangerous, the natural world has always fascinated humankind.

From philosophical and political treatises, to encounters with landscapes and animals, to Native American creation myths, to the historical records of pioneers, settlers, and conservationists, American literature is rich in writing about nature and the natural world. In this course we will explore a variety of texts—novel excerpts, poems, essays, diaries, historical documents—in order to examine the ways in which American authors have depicted the natural world in their writings.

 Instructor: Chiara Luis, PhD
