Nature on Display

1978W [CRN: 25793]

This course explores how people have visualized nature in a variety of context and time periods from the 16th to the 21st century. We will examine the depiction of nature in extremely diverse places, genres, and media: everything from natural history encyclopedias, public dissections, habitat dioramas, to the circus, zoological garden, documentary film, and municipal park. As we do so, we will mine these encounters to explore our changing attitudes towards nature and the place we humans occupy in it. E
