Course Description

The course is based around students reading six contemporary environmental ethnographies. The selected texts cover a range of issues, styles and approaches and students will read each successively as the course progresses. A seminar will be held every fortnight to allow students to discuss each work in depth together with a tutor. Students will be assessed through two comparative essays that discuss a number of the texts featured in the course.
