Additional Details:

 

Through a multi-disciplinary approach, we will look at how current threats to biodiversity are inseparable from threats to cultural diversity and how the history and concept of extinction is implicated in histories of colonialism and imperialism. Resisting the apocalyptic appeal of art that depicts terminal extinction scenarios, course readings and assignments are oriented toward imagining and generating livable futures in the wake of biodiversity loss.
