Human/Nature: An Exploration of Place, Stories, and Climate Futurism – Mar 3

Posted by National Endowment for the Humanities on February 21, 2023

Human/Nature: An Exploration of Place, Stories, and Climate Futurism will bring together 25 teachers from around the country for two weeks, from June 12th through June 23rd, 2023, on Sonoma State University’s campus and through field trips to various locations in Northern California. Additional virtual meetings are explained in detail on the project website.

Through our study of Octavia Butler and other Cli-Fi authors (climate fiction), the Human/Nature Institute is committed to thoughtful dialogue and active engagement with ideas in the spirit of the Freirean approach to reading the word and the world. To this end, we will engage in practices centered on active, student-centered learning pedagogies, including embodied literary experiences in Literacy Unbound, fieldwork, seminars, content creation, and arts integration.

Application deadline: March 3, 2023
