- Catalog Course Entry: ENGL 122AA-ZZ
- Quarter: Summer B 2022
Examines the debate around climate change and climate science. We will examine rhetorics and utilize literary methodologies to investigate their imagined futures. We will read texts that urge us to take climate change seriously as well as analyze some of the tropes most frequently used in denial literature. The goal is not only to understand the implicit narrativization of climate change, but to assess how humanistic methodologies can contribute to these debates and contribute to imagining different futures.
