ENVS 72 Nature Writers

This course combines reading, writing and fieldwork to explore the breadth and richness of the Nature Writing genre.  It is a literature class that will expose you to a variety of nature writing forms; a field course that will put you in the practical position of a nature writer; and a writing workshop in which you will write literary, nature-related essays and critique classmates' work. You will read works by Henry David Thoreau, Barry Lopez, Annie Dillard, Linda Hogan, Lauret Savoy, and Terry Tempest Williams, among others. You will interact with naturalists and others familiar with the region. And you may be involved in a term-long writing project focused on a local issue. Enrollment is limited, and students interested in the course must apply. Applications will include a writing sample—a 3-page personal narrative based on a nature-related experience; the application forms should be requested from the instructor or the ENVS Program Administrator.  Applications are due by the last day of spring term; extensions are possible for students off-campus during the spring.  Students will be notified about application decisions on or before the first day of class.  



Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
