New Faculty Member Anthony Lioi Creates Perfect Storm

A new course, Perfect Storms: Environmental Literature, Ethics, & Politics, examines the politics of ecology through the literature and film today's environmental crisis, unprecedented & planetary in scale, has produced. The class will examine ideas of nature across contemporary global cultures; the environmental history of New York City; key cases in environmental ethics, including water pollution, food production, mass extinction of species, and global climate change; and popular movements for environmental change in Japan, India, Kenya, and Russia.
