GEOL 983 - Stories from Stone: A British History of Our Planet

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4NS

This historical geology course will be informed by modern geological thinking, but will also examine the origins of that thinking. Although historical geology classes are histories of the entire planet, they are strongly informed by the place in which they are taught. To examine major events and processes of Earth history, we will use examples from the geology of Great Britain and Europe as illustrations. In parallel with our study of geologic time, we will also take a more historical and philosophical approach to the history of the Earth. Prerequisite: Taught in London. Prior application and acceptance to the Oberlin-in-London Program required.

Enrollment Limit: 15
Instructor: F. Page

Consent of the Instructor Required: Yes
