Using Elit to learn about the environment
This course explores how literature informs the ways we understand, imagine and relate to our environment. Students will study extracts from literary texts and explore how these reflect and construct generic concepts of place and space, and shape attitudes towards the environment. The course has historical and contemporary segments. The former examines ways in which the countryside, wilderness and the city have been represented in and shaped by literature since ancient times. The latter focuses on how texts present contemporary issues of environmentalism, postmodernism and digital culture. As well as responding to literary texts and film, students will be asked to reflect on local environmental issues and consider these in the context of contemporary theories of globalization and environmentalism.
