As Patrick Murphy points out, contemporary environmental texts stimulate us to question our human relationship with the environment and challenge us to think about what it means to inhabit the world more responsibly.

In this course, intended for third- and fourth-year students, we will examine our relations to non-human beings as well as natural and human-made environments in various texts: Ponyo (2008)Witi Ihimaera's Whale Rider, Yann Martel's Life of Pi, Barbara Kingsolver's Animal Dreams, Indra Sinha's Animal's People, Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea and selected poems. We will use these texts to open up a number of questions regarding ourselves and the non-human world. What are our attitudes toward animals? Does our conception of the place of animals in human culture reflect a human-centered view ofGregory Colbert, Boy Reading the world in which animals are resources for human aesthetic pleasure, companionship, and consumption? In addition, in what ways do some of the texts represent the issue of toxicity and the impact of human life upon the well-being of the planet? And to what extent does our reading of environmental literature help foster our ecological awareness and deepen our appreciation of the world? Join us and find out for yourself!
