ENGLISH 60N: Living on the Edge: Language and Landscape of the Western Fringes

What does it feel like to live on the edge, facing an expanse between you and the next place? Who has lived on the Western fringes of Britain and America? Who has named, formed, and been inspired by that land? Whose voices are silenced in the (re)making of a place? Shaping the landscape through the words we use or the features we build is as old as recorded time and, in this seminar, we'll investigate how the land is imagined, defined, settled, and delimited throughout history, with particular reference to western Britain and California. We'll focus on specific elements in the landscape Water, Hill, Tree, Stone, and Border looking at a sequence of locations through historical, archaeological, placename, literary, and artistic analyses. Students will produce place-name studies; the depictions of landscape through creative work (poetry, prose, non-fiction, song, or picture) on three fieldtrips; and close readings of literary descriptions of landscape. Among the authors study will be John Muir, John Steinbeck, Edward Thomas, Linda Noel, Dylan Thomas, and Gwyneth Lewis.

PWR 2KM: Writing & Rhetoric 2: A Planet on the Edge: The Rhetoric of Sustainable Energy

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Sea-level rise, the halting of major ocean circulatory currents, outbreaks of superstorms leading to floods and droughts - can an energy revolution still save a planet on the edge? This class explores the intricacies of sustainable energy, focusing on the myths, slogans, and rhetorical narratives that surround these debates. For example, is environmentalism inherently at odds with economic prosperity? Does living an environmentally conscious lifestyle require personal sacrifice and suffering? How does rhetorical framing affect the research, implementation, and public perception of new technologies in the field of sustainable energy? For more information about PWR 2, see https://undergrad.stanford.edu/programs/pwr/courses/pwr-2. For full course descriptions, see https://vcapwr-catalog.stanford.edu. Enrollment is handled by the PWR office.
