Expanded Course Description
This interdisciplinary graduate seminar explores the intersections of environment and race in the United States. We read scholarship that seeks to understand how racial projects articulate with changing cultural constructions of nature. How have representations of nature, land, or the environment communicated particular ideas about race and racial categories? How have racial projects been produced through or furthered by particular ecological relations? How have Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian American writers and artists navigated the mutually constitutive construction of race and nature in their literary and cultural productions? What are the environmental imaginaries that emerge in the work of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian American writers, artists, and activists? The class includes a collaborative public humanities project using racial ecologies as a frame to examine social and environmental justice issues in Oregon.
