Adam Tinkle ’08 and Will Blomquist ’08 will be running a student forum this semester titled Contemporary Environmental
Philosophy. Here’s what Adam has to say:
We are going to be holding a student forum this semester for a full credit to explore the wide range of contemporary theoretical perspectives in the burgeoning field of environmental philosophy. We’ll read from subfields like deep ecology, ecofeminism, Green political theory, animal liberation and many others. A tentative syllabus is available here, but the class will generate much of the syllabus together. Email atinkle@wes with your name, class year, and any relevant coursework or experience in the fields of philosophy, environmental studies or critical theory, along with a few words about why you’re interested.
We are tentatively scheduling the course for Wednesday nights. We will be holding an organizational meeting to discuss logistics and hand out the first reading at 4:00 PM this Friday on the first floor of Usdan.
EDIT: Corrected the title of the forum.
