Literature of the Land and Water

Drawing upon the rich tradition of American Nature Writing, and with a special emphasis on award-winning literature from the Chesapeake Bay region, students read, discuss, and reflect upon fiction and nonfiction work.  In addition to exploring how our literary traditions have shaped our interactions with the land and water, the course also provides a forum for individual reflections on issues raised in other classes and allows students to narrate their personal journey through the semester.
