MALS 4740 - Natural Science & Literature

The natural sciences have inspired some of the most entertaining, creative and provocative works in international literature. Writers like Thoreau, Gould, McPhee, Kingsolver and others have explored some of the most complex theories that explain the majesty of the physical world. Students read and analyze many works in this popular genre. Specifically, we’ll take a look at how these writers use story to shape their work, how they introduce and explain multifaceted theories for the layperson, and how recent scientific theory has shaped our culture. Students also have an opportunity to write about scientific subjects in their own voice.
