4500: Spanish for the Sciences

Prerequisites: Two Spanish courses at the 3000 level or consent of instructor. This course will focus on scientific and environmental questions, debates, and discourses in the Spanish-speaking world. Students will work with a variety of socio-historical situations to help frame issues such as biodiversity, water scarcity, oil spills, wildfires and ecotourism. While the course will largely focus on scientific and environmental writing, another component will be the consideration of cultural responses to scientific and environmental problems, including documentaries, podcasts, poetry and visual art. The course will offer students a broad range of voices currently participating in scientific and environmental discourses in order to think comparatively about some of the most pressing issues facing humanity today. All course work will be conducted in Spanish.
