AFVS 144M. Photography and Ecology

Integrating the study of art history, research-based artistic production, theory, and environmental studies, the aim of this course is to critically and actively explore the contemporary interplay between photographic vision and environmental history; the shifting composition, structure, and function of landscapes; cultural constructions of nature and environmental perceptions; environmental justice, politics, and policy; and, the role of photography in responding to how humans create and impact landscape patterns and process.

Note: Interested students must attend the first meeting of the course to learn about enrollment procedures.
