Interdisciplinary Special Topics-Humanities

Special courses drawn from interdisciplinary groups in the humanities. Content varies. For University Honors Program students only.

Class description

For the greater part of the human experience our legs were our primary mode of transit. In fact, it is very much our upright posture and two straight legs that define us as a species. With the advent of and subsequent adoption of mechanized modes of travel as the dominant means of travel in the past two centuries, we have begun to sever our multi-millennial relationship with our legs. In this seminar we will explore not only how walking has influenced myriad facets of the human story, but also the environmental, economic and health ramifications of our transportation choices.
