That we are endowed with such intuitive and intellectual capabilities as that of discovering the genes and the R.N.A. and D.N.A. and other fundamental principles governing the fundamental design controls of life systems as well as of nuclear energy and chemical structuring is part of the extraordinary design of the Spaceship Earth, its equipment, passengers, and internal support systems. It is therefore paradoxical but strategically explicable, as we shall see, that up to now we have been mis-using, abusing, and polluting this extraordinary chemical energy-interchanging system for successfully regenerating all life aboard our planetary spaceship.

Remixing Discourses of Sustainability



What is sustainability? As practices devoted to the mindful tuning of human habitats to the freedoms and constraints of ecosystems, sustainability begins with the deployment of rhetorical practices for visualizing, mapping, narrating and arguing for visions of any given ecosystem. This course will review global definitions, concepts and discourses of sustainability, remixing them toward practices inhabitable by 21st century econauts. Students will work with the Center for Sustainability composing multimedia rhetorical tools - such as user friendly technical writing, video, sound and web design- to help remix and propagate practices of sustainability in Central Pennsylvania and across the increasingly informatic biosphere.
