Sustaining Humans.

This course explores human sustainability in its broadest sense: What does sustaining our species mean? How should we determine what must be sustained in our world(s)? What do the humanities–literature, art, history, and philosophy– have to teach us about how best to assess and preserve our cultures, our physical environs, and ourselves?

As we explore these questions the class will be conducted like a laboratory, with a mixture of shared readings, class discussions, independent and group research, and coordinated research outcomes.
