Course Description Prerequisites: Writing sample required to apply: required cover sheet and instructions are available here: http://english.barnard.edu/forms-procedures/forms A non-fiction course about nature and writing, or nature as the occasion for writing. We will read about changing attitudes to the natural order at different historical moments – our own included – and will look at photographs and paintings, at exhibits in the Museum of Natural History, at whatever moves in the Bronx Zoo. We will think about landscapes and about animals, in the belief that, as the philosopher Mary Midgley has written: ‘were we to know no other life-form than our own, we would be utterly mysterious to ourselves as a species.’
