Sea Level Rise, Islands and the Environmental Humanities

ENV 455/COM 454/ENG 255

Info tab content
Sea Level Rise, Islands and the Environmental Humanities explores how islanders, predominantly but not exclusively in the Pacific and the Caribbean, are experiencing sea level rise and engaging it in literature, arts and film. Students in the seminar will learn the environmental science and policy related to sea level rise. They will consider solutions being put forward to address the impacts, such as hard engineering (sea walls or artificial islands) or soft engineering (restoring coral or oyster reefs, mangrove marshes or wetlands). Additionally, students will engage literature, art and films by and about islanders and sea level rise.
