For a more than human humanism

Exploring the Dolomites: Landscape, History and Ecology – Field seminar (Summer 2022)

I look forward to leading a group of UO students in the exploration of the astonishing natural history and geological wonders of the Dolomites, and the traces of human history in these sublime mountains. This is a field seminar cross-listed in Romance Languages and Comparative literature, and open to a variety of students from different departments including History, Earth Sciences, Geography, International and Environmental Studies.  It will be a transformative voyage of discovery where the individual “self” learns to relate to the pervasive and embracing dimensions of time and space written in the landscape.

During the 2-week journey, we will experience the best of the Dolomites, practice conscious excursions, and an experiential environmental and historical education.
Hiking from hut to hut and  through tunnels created during WWI, we will learn to read the magnificent natural landscape as a unique and open textbook. Students can choose to focus on one of the following 2 areas of study: 1) Landscape, History and Literature; 2) Geology, ecology and photography.
