Indigenous peoples have long been imagined as exemplary environmental figures who are “close to nature.” During this course, we will encounter the more complex ways in which writers of differing Indigenous communities narrate their connections to the land, cities, the ocean, the desert, and many life forms, in contexts that include urbanization, climate change, surfing cultures, and incarceration. Along the way, we’ll consider their aesthetic experiments in attuning us to human interrelation with nonhuman beings. Through readings and discussions, we’ll also engage with histories, critical terms, and debates in Indigenous Studies.
