An exploration of how concepts like nature, wilderness, and landscape have been incorporated into art. Cross-cultural instances of landscape painting will be placed in their historical contexts. We will then explore artists who incorporate the land into their art, from the site-specific artists of the late twentieth century to artists addressing the ecological concerns of the present day. We will consider Chinese literati painting, European Romanticism, frontier painting and regionalism in the United States, Earthworks, and recent artistic responses to global climate change and the exploitation of natural resources. We will consider how visual arts can not only reflect but also alter societal attitudes and practices. This course fulfills the Fine Arts requirement in the core curriculum.

Pavel L. Gavrilyuk

This section addresses the perennial problem of suffering and evil in light of contemporary research on human flourishing and happiness. The central question of the course is whether suffering can play a constructive role in the good life. While some forms of suffering are destructive, other forms of suffering, given the right attitude, can be conducive to the building of character and leading a life that has a richer meaning. The course brings a theological viewpoint to bear on these issues; it also draws on the resources of philosophy, psychology, literature, and history. The written assignments will encourage the students to integrate course material, articulate their own assumptions about suffering and human flourishing, and apply general principles to real-life situations. This class is restricted to students in the new core.

This is a Bridge Course whose readings will focus primarily on C.S. Lewis's literary works, especially, but not exclusively, on his fiction. The course will also include some critical works, both Lewis's as well as others' work about Lewis. In addition, numerous biblical passages will be examined, including the parables of Jesus, which, as a parallel to Lewis's work, can demonstrate the theological possibility of narrative. Class lectures and readings in and about Lewis will explore Christian theology and its interdisciplinary relations to literature, especially myth. Through the lens of Lewis's literature, historical, philosophical, moral, educational, and global issues will be considered. Prerequisite: THEO 101 and one 200-level or 300-level THEO course and PHIL 115
