ENG 315-2 American Indian Literature and Environmental Justice 3 sem. hrs.
HI/DV: This course examines how the place of nature in contemporary American Indian literature challenges the dominant views of nature that shape polarized discussions in America today on almost every environmental issue. The course will examine how solutions to environmental problems currently facing many Indian tribes are not to be found in either Romantic or Enlightenment views of nature, and how American Indian philosophy offers alternative ways to think about the relationship between society and nature. The course will use literature, philosophy, history and the principles of postmodern social theory to examine these issues. Fulfills Diversity and Heritage I requirement. ENG 102 or HON 103 competency required Next Offered F-12, F-14.
