Re-Enchanting Nature: Humanities Perspectives

A three-week seminar for 16 school teachers on the relationship of humans to the natural world.

Carroll College looks to again host a seminar for school teachers titled "Re-Enchanting Nature: Humanities Perspectives." The seminar draws upon religious, historical, literary, fine arts, and cinematic perspectives to provide an intellectual framework through which to explore the human relationship with nature. Inspired by the NEH's efforts to bring humanities into public discourse, this program demonstrates for participants that a more full and reasoned understanding of the national discourse is supported when the humanities are included as part of the conversation. Carroll College will host the participants for the first two weeks on campus while the final week is hosted at Yellowstone Park. Four interdisciplinary themes will be examined during the seminar: 1) Exploring Origin, 2) Defining Nature, 3) Imagining a Way Forward, and 4) Bringing it all Together in Yellowstone National Park.
