Professors Interested in Humanity's Relationship to Wilderness?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Perhaps too specific of a question, but I was curious if anyone knows of any MFA programs containing faculty that flirt with ideas of nature/culture and humanity's relationship to wilderness. I have done quite a bit of sleuthing with little results and thought It couldn't hurt to cast a line out here as well. 

Thanks for any leads and I hope the application process is treating you well!

It's currently driving me crazy... XD

Edit* I should add that I'm currently in the process of applying to ASU, OSU, UO, PennDesign, and potentially UCLA? (Not all for the reason above.)

Zachary Cahill from the University of Chicago makes some work that is sort of related to those concepts—I know he taught a class on landscape when I was an undergrad. He was recently appointed as curator for an arts center within the University, so not 100% sure how much he'll be teaching anymore.

Elefarif,

both of those programs seem incredible! Thanks for sharing. 

I don't think that a low-res option is right for me at the moment, so I won't be applying, but happy to have perused those links nonetheless.

In terms of how many, really up to you. If you can afford it, I can only imagine more applications being a positive thing. Assuming that quality of app. isn't lowered because you are focusing on a greater amount. :]
