FINA 235 Earthspace

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
200 level undergraduate course

This course examines human impacts on and interactions with nature, including weather patterns, dynamic and cataclysmic phenomena like earthquakes and hurricanes, and climate-induced environmental events such as droughts, erosion and mudslides. Projects are undertaken that explore ecologically motivated and environmentally attuned art such as earthworks, land projects, performance and nature-based ephemeral works and ecofeminist works, and may be both discipline specific or interdisciplinary. Students are expected to research and reference related fields, such as landscape architecture, geography, biology, horticulture, agriculture and anthropology through imagination, experimentation, as well as through use of both anecdotal and scientific resources.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
