HIST 3950 - Environmental History (DHA/CI)

DHA/CI Depth Humanities and Creative Arts and Communications Intensive
3 credits

Surveys writings from a relatively new genre of historical scholarship that attempts to explain the relationship between human society and the natural world. Readings focus on North America, but students also have opportunity to survey materials from the non-Western world. Course is reading and writing intensive, and requires students to conduct a research project in which they construct the history of a particular landscape.
