This is an advanced reading seminar focused on contemporary, experimental, and speculative political ecologies. Readings will include books, dissertation manuscripts, and scholarly articles. Students will be expected to contribute in the design of the course syllabus to reflect their interests. The course will be a collective intellectual endeavor conducted through 1) written reflections and conversation on an online blog that we will curate, inviting political ecology scholars also to join our online conversation, and 2) through regular real-time interactive conversations on Zoom. Evaluation will be based on participation in real-time and blog conversations, including a weekly reflective blog posting; leading two real-time conversations on Zoom; and a final synthetic essay on a topic of their choosing.
