For BIPOC | Ecopoetics: Through the Lens of Brown & Green
Open to all levels
How do people of color write about our relationships to the land? From displacement, forced migration, and stolen land to urban farming and herbal healing, how is our experience of nature related to our traditional cultural practices? In this class, we will explore the ways in which people of color write about the natural world. We will read the work of Ross Gay, Camille T Dungy, Lois-Ann Yamanaka, Janice Mirikitani and others.
ADDITIONAL CLASS DETAILS:
- This class includes:
- Generative Writing: students create new work during class or from assignments.
- Feedback in class: Both peer and instructor feedback given.
- Work outside of class: No writing or reading outside of class.
This class is intended as a space specifically for students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color. We ask that students that do not identify as such kindly respect this intention and refrain from registering.
