HART376 American Landscape 3cr.


In 19th and 20th century America, concepts of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’ were intimately bound
together, an integral part of how national, social, and cultural identities were forged.
Landscape was governed by a host of parallel discourses: images of American spaces evoked
commercial, political, religious, personal, social and scientific meanings. This course
tracks the origins and development of fundamental relationships between people, space, resources,
and the organic world.  We seek evidence of how poets, writers, and philosophers have also
approached American space, and look at how artists have demonstrated concerns with
sustainability and ecology in the Anthropocene.
