The course critically examines literary and cultural works that address the relationships between race, migration, and the environment, illuminating social and political forces that shape human/nonhuman movement and the natural world. How do cultural works centering marginalized communities reveal systemic inequities and imagine more sustainable relationships with land and water? How are our individual and collective identities entangled with a sense of place? We consider how literary and visual narratives can inspire and reflect on social movements at the intersection of racial, migrant, and environmental justice. Course texts may include novels, poetry, documentary film, visual art, and select literary criticism.
