INSH 1101 - Picturing the World (or How We Came to Understand What Nature Is)
Offers a multidisciplinary introduction to how we represent the world and the natural environment through hands-on study of early modern maps, art prints, and books. Examines how the invention of the scientific method (and fields from geography to botany) interfaces with the personal observations and experiences of travelers from Marco Polo to Charles Darwin. Further examines the way modern technologies, such as cinema, television, and digital media, are once again changing the way we see and understand the world.
