ENGH 107 - Indigenous Environments: Literature and Film

4 credits
This course examines contemporary indigenous literature and film using an environmental lens to explore the ways these texts help us understand past and present issues like displacement, resource extraction, and toxic exposure. Texts include fiction and poetry by authors like Louise Erdrich, Linda Hogan, and Simon Ortiz as well as such films as Smoke Signals, The Return of Navajo Boy, and Zapatista. Although the focus will be mainly on Native American contexts, the course will also engage with global texts to consider how environmental injustice is perpetuated by globalization and transnational economic policies. Equivalent: ESS 107   CLA-Breadth/Humanities, CLA-Diversity US
