Get outside and engage all your senses! This seminar-stye class will examine the ways that composers, dancers, performers and visual artists have engaged with the living Earth, and with environmental activism. It offers a philosophical/critical look at the thinking underpinning our relationship to the more-than-human life around us, and a consideration of the role that the visual and performing arts have in structuring and transforming our understandings of the world.

Intended Audience:

Open to students from all fields, graduate and undergraduate.
