Online Class | Embodied Ecopoetics

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | Why do we care about the natural world? What moves us to react to environmental crises, such as climate change and species extinction? How can scientific and spiritual ideas overlap within the body of a poem? This class will delve into contemporary ecopoetry and the impact of this important work. Integrating discussion, reading, and generative exercises, students will examine their own relationship to the environment while exploring new approaches to ecocentric poetics.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
