The Organic Metaphor in Politics

Dates: January 15 – February 22, 2024

Location: Viroqua, Wisconsin

Contact: Jacob Hundt – [email protected]

Deadline: December 1, 2023 (deadline may be extended, inquire if interested)

Description: The Organic Metaphor in Politics integrates a rigorous academic study of political thought with Thoreau College’s embodied rhythm of craft, self-governance, labor, shared meals, and encounters with nature. The current multi-dimensional ecological crisis reveals to what extent human life is enmeshed in the natural world. To the extent that politics, the study of living together, must now include all living forms, this crisis demands a reevaluation of the political-economic order that engendered it. This course will critically examine this order by analyzing the motivations, implications, and consequences of various instances in which political thinkers have borrowed language from the natural world.

Classes will be structured seminar-style with objects of study including:
·      Major texts in the history of European political thought (Plato, Hobbes, Marx)
·      Black and Indigenous studies (Fanon, Kopenawa, Yusoff)
·      Contemporary activist scholarship (Donna Haraway, Adrienne Maree Brown, LaDuke)
·      Policy documents
·      Archaeological records
