ENGL 272: Wild Things: Wilderness Lit

1 unit
Prerequisites: Completion with a 2.0 or better of one unit numbered ENGL 120 to ENGL 189, or permission of instructor.
An exploration of literary representations of wildness and wilderness–as ideas and geographical realities.  We’ll reflect on what we value in the natural world and why, and we’ll investigate how the fictional and nonfictional stories we tell ourselves about wildness and wilderness shape our decisions regarding which aspects of our environment we find worthy of protection.   Christensen
