Course Description

Over the four weeks, we will discuss eight contemporary written works (essays, short stories, poems) that encounter and reflect upon the natural world in some way. We’ll discuss structure, audience, context, and effect, and think carefully about notions of beauty and the pastoral. In the second half of each class we will do some of our own writing, inspired (or provoked) by the pieces we’ve just discussed. On the last day, we may share our favorite experiments with the group. Reading assignments will be under 25 pages per week. Required material: Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, Jaime Green, Best American Science and Nature Writing of 2022; $11.89
