The increasing intensity, severity, and frequency of environmental-ecological disasters in the last decades has brought greater urgency in discussions surrounding climate change, environmental justice, and the Anthropocene. This course traces the intellectual, ideological, and historical developments of early nature writing to current topics in ecocriticism. We will cover a variety of theoretical approaches from postcolonial ecocriticism, ecofeminism, to studies related to the Anthropocene, while reading works of literature and film such as Henry David Thoreau's Walden, Leslie Marmon Silko's Ceremony, Simon Ortiz's Fight Back, Maxine Hong Kingston's China Men, and Karen Tei Yamashita's Tropic of Orange. We will also explore Berlin's Anthropocene by walking the city and a kayak/canoe tour of the Spree.
