Our topic for class October 12 is “The ‘Two Planets’ Phenomenon: Rising Water, Sinking Communities,” as told through multiple narratives that are simultaneous, yet distinctive, and quite different from each other. We will consider how the “Two Planets” phenomenon shapes the ways in which we think about and imagine recent events that involve rising waters and sinking communities.
When you have completed viewing and reading, including looking somewhat further into the areas that most interest you, develop some aspect of your thoughts in your portfolio.
