Here’s what I’ve been doing in Environmental Theory for the whole semester:
Felling Forests & Fishy Fact-Finding: My praxis project on the Hinkle Creek Paired Watershed Study in Douglas County, Oregon
Auf Wiedersehn, adieu: Tying up Latour readings and trying to make sense of the Gifford Lectures
Pulling the Bunny out of the Hat: Working through the Gifford lectures, learning about war and the earthbound
Douglas County Antics: Praxis project research, understanding the controversy behind Hinkle Creek, and a field trip to Douglas County.
Thoughts on Theory: Exploring Bruno Latour through the eyes of Michael Flower, Science and science, and the food web taking over for the food chain.
Making sense of “Making Sense of Nature”: Trying to understand Noel Castree’s Making Sense of Nature and being a little snarkey in the process
Systematic Environmental Theory: An exploration in systematic environmental theory and its practical application using Hinkle Creek in Douglass as a case study
Apocalypticism: My “ism” summary that gives a brief overview of apocalypticism, how it is used in evaluating and critiquing writing in the field of environmental studies, and some examples of its use in looking at environmental classics
Dear Jim: An analysis of the environmental studies program at Lewis & Clark and how it can be made better from a third-year student
Untying the Knot: A response to systematic environmental theory when discussion of if first started and a little tangent about Actor Network Theory
Remember: Only you can prevent forest fires: My first stab at coming up with an idea for my praxis project using a big cuddly “taken for granted object,” Smokey the Bear!
Back to the books with you!: A look at what “environmental classics” are and why they are still important
Theory as we know it: The first post! A general response to the first week of environmental theory and what exactly it is
