Envs 350/Eng 302- Writing and Mapping the Anthropocene (Course or Curricular Materials)
Title: Envs 350/Eng 302- Writing and Mapping the Anthropocene
Author: Patrick Hurley
Author: Jon Volkmer
Abstract: In addition to regular in-class work, this course includes experiential or outdoor components built into the class, a series of associated methods assignments, and one, weekend stewardship activitiy. Our outdoor activities and stewardship will offer you the opportunity to engage with different scientific, social scientific, and humanities forms of engagement with the landscapes, ecosystems, and species that characterize southeastern Pennsylvania’s Anthropocene “mixed settlements,” while providing you the opportunity to match the theory of our readings with the practice of studying these complex places. In short, these are the moments and places where you will have the chance to “ground-truth” our understandings of the Anthropocene. In doing so, we will ask you to engage in original data collection of diverse kinds and interpretive analysis. By the end of the semester, we will ask you to develop your own narrative of what the Anthropocene is and what it means to people living in our region.
