Class Notes

All enrollment restrictions are lifted, except for Freshmen Status. All enrollment restrictions are now lifted, except for Freshmen Status. This upper division course will meet twice synchronously (MW) and once asynchronously per week. Trouble enrolling or questions feel free to email me: lcordoba@ucsc.edu. This course is taught from a critical race, anti-colonial/post-colonial, feminist, Indigenous/Native American perspective. Through our study of the material and cultural transformations of landscapes and humans, this course will interest those who wonder how we have come to think of nature in the way we do today, and those interested in critical natural histories of humans and non-humans. Yet, grounded on anti-colonial thinking, it will bring to your attention other ways of thinking about and doing "nature" that may open spaces of hope and action. Nature walks will be included.
