evolving ecological media culture(s)

Eco Lit, Arts & Media


I’m currently teaching an intermediate-level undergraduate course called “Environmental Literature, Arts, and Media,” or “ELAM” for short. The class covers many styles and formats of literature, arts (including music), and media work that engage in various ways with environmentally/ecologically oriented thematics and practices. The course syllabus is here. An early version of its themes is here.

Students engage in a series of activities which, aside from readings and discussions, include a creative arts project (which can make use of any artistic medium, from literary to visual to performative to digital) and profiles of environmentally oriented artists, musicians, writers, film and media makers, and art works.

We are currently discussing whether to share some of those materials here. Stay tuned.
