This interdisciplinary class explores art and culture dedicated to ecological issues. Our focus this fall will be to investigate how we produce, distribute and consume food. We will look at work that artists, writers and activists have done to call attention to these issues and imagine alternative futures. How have these projects been effective or ineffective? All class participants will make their own projects in the course of the semester either in teams or individually, as well as be responsible for several blog entries. Student projects can include artwork, creative activism, journalism blog entries, research, etc. Class will result in a publication, exhibition, event and/or intervention designed by the class. Open to all university departments and majors, as well as ESF. There will be two additional one-credit workshops related to the class that will be optional. Each class will begin with a meal.
