Language of Nature Eco-Justice Poetry

Thursday, January 27th 2022

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Every Thursday. January 27th - February 17th

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

How do pressing environmental issues intersect—or collide—with equally pressing issues of human rights? How do contemporary poets negotiate these treacherous cross-currents to create compelling works of art?


For this new four-part, hybrid course in the Language of Nature series, we will plunge into the burgeoning and cutting-edge poetry being written today from the standpoint of eco-justice. This is poetry at the interface between human and nonhuman, built and unbuilt environments, crisis and imagined dystopian or resilient futures.


Each week we will read and discuss selections from the works of established authors such as Gary Snyder, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Jorie Graham, along with exciting newer voices. This is a hybrid class with both in-person and virtual options available for participants.
