    Art and Ecology

    Sugata Ray, Sharad Chari, Asma Kazmi

    Friday, 2:00-5:00pm

    Taught by faculty from the Departments of Art Practice, Geography, and History of Art, this Big Ideas course is a space where we collectively study, think, and make art about the cataclysmic ecological crises that threaten our planet today. Examining possible notions of the animal, the botanic, the oceanic, the geologic, and the atmospheric, among other themes, the course prompts embodied responses to this urgent moment through complex, experimental, scholarly, and practice-based interventions. The aim is to read human interactions with the planet in relation to the past, present, and future of earthly environments, as shaped by historical processes, resonances, interruptions, and movements.

    This course fulfills the following Major requirements: Geographical area (E), and Chronological period (I) or (II) or (III), based on the topic of the final research paper or project.
