The United States has often been called "nature's nation." This course will explore some of the ways in which American writers have depicted relations between their fellow citizens and the natural world. Paying special attention to depictions of nature and place, farming, and back-to-the-land movements, we will raise questions about national identity and values, rural ideology, utopianism, and the foundations of the environmental movement.
