OverviewLiterature and the Environment examines the inter-relationship between between literary texts and concepts of Nature. From the vantage point of contemporary concerns with climate change and environmental sustainability, this course questions literature's representation of the natural world and human society's place within it. It will compare various understandings of Nature from a range of contexts and ask whether it is possible to model an environmental practice of reading and writing.
