Since this is a new and evolving course, I would like your input about the selection of readings.
Which readings did you particularly enjoy?
Which readings did you find less enjoyable/interesting/relevant that you might suggest removing or replacing for future versions of the course?
Have you found readings in the course of your annotated bibliography/final paper research that might be appropriate and interesting for inclusion in future versions of the course? (If so, please include a complete citation so I can find it!)
We had some great poems this morning, and I hope you are willing to share them here.
Use this space to continue the discussion on land ethics and land aesthetics. You may share your response to the free write topic on where/how your personal land ethic developed or thoughts on any of the questions we discussed in class. Happy pondering!
Please comment on this post with a brief introduction of yourself. Include:
- Your major (or potential major(s) if you have not yet declared)
- A description of your favorite place
- What interests you about this course, why you chose to take it
Welcome! This semester we will be exploring a variety of aspects of human-environment interactions. I use the word “exploring” deliberately. The topic of human-environment interactions is vast, and we will be only scratching the surface in this course. I hope to provide you with a framework you can refer to in thinking about human-environment interactions and give you an entry point into the topic. Beyond that, we will be exploring together, and I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to dig in to aspects that most interest you.
