LALS 279 - Land Pedagogies

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as HISP 279 ) The current climate crisis urges us to review how we interact with the environment. From an Indigenous perspective, the environment is nothing less than the land and all the diverse life forms, including humans, that sprout from them (the land as “they” and not a lifeless “it”). In this intensive, we critically reflect on our relationship to the land by engaging with land-based pedagogies practiced by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) scholars, farmers, and educators. This intensive includes discussion sessions and hands-on activities co-created, co-facilitated, and in collaboration with the education team of the Poughkeepsie Farm Project. Written and oral assignments are conducted in Spanish. Prerequisite(s): HISP 216 or HISP 219 and special permission of the instructor. Interested students should contact Prof. Montserrat Madariaga-Caro. Montserrat Madariaga-Caro.
