Writing Ecologies - ENGX332

What literary techniques, genres and styles are called forth by the environmental challenges of our times? This applied writing unit looks at how nonfiction, as a human art-form, accesses the non-human world. In addressing contemporary ecological themes, students will have the opportunity to explore traditions in creative nonfiction, nonfiction poetry, lyricism, natural history, science, and public advocacy writing. Skills developed include place-based observation, writing about embodiment and landscape, writing about animals, scientific storytelling and the use of primary resources. At the conclusion of the unit students will submit a writing folio developed throughout the workshop series.
