This course is an investigation of the environment and deep time – what it is and how we might understand it- from perspectives of science, art, culture, and philosophy, and image-makers working to explore these concepts. We will explore the Anthropocene and the repercussions of humans on global environmental issues and the world through contemporary artists and their images. This will be a seminar style course with lectures, readings, and discussion.
