NEH Enduring Questions Course on Definitions of the Natural

The development and teaching of a new junior seminar on diverse conceptions of what is natural.

This grant request is for $21,982 to teach the Enduring Questions course "What is the Natural State?" Dr. Kimberly Reiter at Stetson University is the Project Director. The 26-month grant will run from May 1, 2015 to July 31, 2017. During the grant period, the course will be developed, taught two times, and disseminated on the Stetson webpage and at two interdisciplinary conferences. A museum/field trip experience will enhance the students' appreciation of the complexity of the enduring question and contribute to Stetson's commitment to experiential learning. The enduring questions course meets Stetson University's priorities of a liberal arts education, undergraduate research, and experiential learning. The course also has significance, because it posits an enduring question to be explored through interdisciplinary issues in the humanities, including the cosmos, nature, and humanity.
