Description: This course challenges us to think about isolation, alienation, and survival in a global age. What happens to those left behind, those cast out, and those seemingly misplaced? Topics such as colonialism, immigration, feminist history, and the anthropocene guide our discussion of the moral and political dimensions of "castaways."
