I will be teaching a course on Wendell Berry's Unsettling of America. We will carefully and closely read his essays and discuss geographical, agricultural, social, and cultural implications of present-day agribusiness techniques. Several essays and poems outside of the aforementioned text maybe included in the course. We will also examine other sources like Walter Benjamin and Thomas Jefferson, texts which I will provide. Early on we will also watch Berry's recently held Jefferson Lecture. I expect a strong desire to dig into the texts and explore.
