Description: This course joins the ongoing effort to make sense of how humans have reshaped the planet and its ecosystems. It does so by focusing on how a key concept, the Anthropocene, has journeyed from the geological sciences to a wide array of disciplines and audiences. We’ll explore how historians, critics, philosophers, journalists, scientists, activists, poets, novelists, filmmakers, and others are finding new ways to talk about how we got here and how we might contend with the possible futures that await us. We’ll hone new skills for reading, writing, and thinking about changing environments. And together we’ll imagine the kind of communities we might create in response to a warming world.
