This capstone course in the study of the built environment brings history and theory alive for those students with expertise in such diverse fields as art, architecture, American studies, engineering, and the natural sciences. An interdisciplinary approach is taken to read a landscape for its invisibles, from its geological origins to its social implications. To what degree has a landscape been shaped by its physical circumstances, designers, and inhabitants? How does it reflect its cultural heritage and project biased meanings? How can landscape literacy enable a closer reading of the past in order to build a better future? Independent work, class discussion, and public speaking are emphasized. Prerequisite: one 200 level course in LSS or permission of the instructor. Priority given to LSS minors, and seniors and juniors. Enrollment limited to 12.
