HUM STUD 370. Sustainability through the Humanities. 3 Credits.
This course offers a critical exploration of the problem of sustainability from the perspective of the humanities, including history, First Nations Studies, literature, and philosophy. The problem of environmental sustainability has at least as much to do with our cultures, histories, languages, and philosophies as it does with more concrete factors such as resource usage and pollution. To the extent that humanistic disciplines help us to expand and broaden how we comprehend the natural world, so too might they provide us with essential resources and tools with which to imagine and mount broad and value-infused solutions. This course will include a digital and public humanities project.
