When you look at a plant, what do you see?  What knowledge and perspectives do you use to understand this plant?  In this seminar, you will explore different ways of knowing about plants through scientific and Indigenous lenses. We will explore questions about how these perspectives impact the way you see and interact with the plants that surround you in your everyday life. Readings include works by scientists and Indigenous authors. This course is designed as a series of experiential learning opportunities, including field trips to the UM museums, neighboring nature areas, and discussions with guest speakers. Students will keep field journals to reflect on their experiences, lead discussions, and work as a team to contribute to a semester-long digital project using ARCGIS StoryMaps.
