EA 147 PZ -Advanced Seminar

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course reviews key theories and methods to prepare sophomore and junior EA majors for senior-level work. This advanced seminar will facilitate your transition from being Environmental Analysis students to Environmental Analysis scholars who are prepared to conduct original research and/or engage with hands-on research and writing. We will read and discuss EA-based research with particular attention to the different methodological and theoretical approaches used in the field. The course is organized based on the most common types of evidence Environmental Analysis scholars use in their research. Each week we will examine articles that use different types of evidence, including: archival documents; law and legislation; newspapers and magazines; photography; film; music; oral history, ethnography, and interviews; maps, spatial data, demographic data, and reports; and museum exhibitions, public history and memorials. We will also read a number of articles to better understand the ongoing debates over how “Environmental Studies” should be defined. Through readings and class discussions, as well as writing assignments, students will develop the analytical tools they need to begin their upper-level work in EA. Sophomore and Junior EA students are invited to participate. 

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
