Historian William Cronon has written that “the time has come to rethink wilderness,” whihc is what this course aims to do through a critical examinaton of literary texts representing various conceptions of unpopulated, or depopulated, American landscapes. Wilderness as wasteland, wilderness as refuge, wilderness as frontier, wilderness as playground - these are only some of the ways taht wilderness has been represented in the American popular imagination. Our explorations may include such authors as Henry David Thoreau, Jon Muir, Mary Austin, Evelyn White and Edward Abbey.
