This course will examine a range of human experiences and expressions of place, centered on the area of Camp Davis, Wyoming but extending in conceptual terms across the central and northern Rocky Mountain region and, from there, to the American West as a whole. Taking environment as a key focus, the course will consider the role of geology and ecology in the area’s history, examining human and non-human landscapes from the first inhabitants to contemporary debates surrounding development, recreation, and management. At the same time, we will explore human expressions of place, as found in art, literature, and landscape. The course is explicitly inter- and multi-disciplinary, drawing on the methods and knowledges found in the fields of History, Literary Studies, Geography, Geology, and Ecology. The course will function experientially, as a “seminar-on-the-move,” with a number of hikes, trips, and tours to local places. Evaluation will be based on two short papers, class discussion, and journals. Course materials will include a range of collected articles and chapters and one short novel.
