This course is not offered in the current catalog

Class Details

This course looks towards alternate and coexisting imaginaries of life worlds, examining their development in the arts and letters. With attention to visual and literary ethnography, science fiction, feminist theory, and creative non-fiction, we will contemplate methods of making and inventing in the contemporary world, focusing on the transhistorical and transcultural production of knowledge. Speculative forms of creative production and seminar discussion, as well as some of the most challenging ethical proposals for the future will guide our investigation of artworks, media, and literary production. Climate change, environmental justice, indigeneity, and multispecies interaction will resonate at the political center of this experimental seminar.
