FYSP 159 - Back to the Land

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
What does it mean to get back in touch with nature? Can you change the world by living simply and sustainably? In this course, we will explore the theory and practice of agrarian utopianism in the Northern Hemisphere from the 18th century to the present. Students will investigate the construction of Nature, Society, and the Self in communities populated by a wide variety of pastoralists including spiritual pilgrims, sexual exiles, craft revivalists, monkey wrench gangs, and regenerative farmers. By looking at “industrial civilization” through their eyes, we will seek a better understanding of our own condition. Field trips required.
Does this course require off campus field trips? Yes
