Tanzania - Chimps, Cheetahs and More: On Safari in Tanzania, Africa
This course will focus on wildlife, their relationship to us and their conservation, putting into context the readings and literature in each of the specific places we visit. Using texts such as Jane Goodall's In the Shadow of Man and Dale Peterson's Eating Apes, we can compare and contract these literary animals with our own experiences in the field observing them. The goal of this course is to provide a powerful transformative experience through looking at the way in which readings and place, and readings and wildlife operate together. The course will look at current conservation issues as they relate to environmental ethics emobidied in literature, and will transport us into a setting where we can experience the raw power of nature first-hand.
