ENG 394 12 American Environmental Writing
Prof. Meehan

The course combines intensive reading in the rich history of American environmental literature, from Thoreau in the nineteenth century to recent examples of literary ecology and eco-criticism, with extensive experience writing about and within our environment. The course also pursues interdisciplinary connections with the sciences and environmental studies as we explore the role of writing and imagination in an understanding of the natural world.
