  • Course Summary

    ENVS 400 was structured around completing a capstone project built upon a theoretical framework developed in ENVS 350. Earlier stages of the course included working through various sections of our projects and how best to communicate research findings. We worked form the top to bottom of the hourglass building upon previous sections and ultimately editting these section into a completed final project. I wrote my capstone paper about the utility of art in the anthropocene, drawing upon interviews with artists and relevent scholarship.

    Senior Capstone

    Our main work in ENVS 400 involves a senior capstone: an original, interdisciplinary environmental research project, resulting in a thesis or other outcome. The page linked above provides more information on my senior capstone.

    Reflections on my Capstone Development

    April 5, 2020

    My capstone topic has shifted significantly over the past few years. Originally, I planned on writing about and researching regenerative agriculture and other tensions between the pursuit of an ecologically sound agricultural system and the necessity for high crop yields. This year, I decided to focus more on synthesizing what […]
