Meets with HUM 3990 017 in TBA.

**PRE-TERM COURSE**

In this class students and their instructors engage in walkabouts and reflections in  and about our city as well as up into walking the high country, a nature center in our watershed, and feel "place" both from historical memory and present experience. We develop our deep listening skills and practices and use everyday digital media as an accessory to our on-foot investigations.  We study eco-philosophical and poetic writings that challenge our understandings of nature and technologies in the 21st CenturyWe write thoughtful responses, understand how the photographic image teaches us ways of seeing, and compose poetic lyrical reflections of our journeys. Thus, we dwell in the diverse places that define us and compel us to ask: has not technological civilization spread its influence unto every corner of the planet; altering organic life in every region of the biosphere? The question becomes an investigation in a fun, creative way. As the American writer Rebecca Solnit indicates: "Walking, ideally, is a state in which the mind, the body, and the world are aligned, as though they were three characters finally in conversation  together, three notes suddenly making a chord."  (Wanderlust)
