FUTURE ENVIRONMENT

Course Description: 

 

This course traces the many trajectories of the natural world according to the transfigurations of our ecological future. To that end, what are the eventual fates of the jungle, the forest, the ocean, and the desert? In what ways can we conceive the realms of the vegetal, the plant, the elemental, and the molecular? How does the question of energy impact the future of every environmental territory?

Instructor: Prof. Michael Marder
