During this in-person course students will meet for 5 Saturday day-long meetings (10:30am -7:30pm) at several luxurious beaches around New Jersey. The days of instruction are broken up with field observation and exploration, lecture, discussion, somatic research techniques, individual and group projects; each student will write detailed observation in their Saturday environmental log.
Each of the five Saturday meetings will provide a chance to enjoy the outside weather of various New Jersey beaches while students study the many experiential aspects of beach economy, anthropology, and sociology: labor, industry, tourism, recreation and hospitality, ecology, global warming, “beach reading,” beach poetry, architectural and historical sites, cultural venues, self-reflection, beach arts, yoga on the beach, and athletic beach life.
The first class meets in New Brunswick, and will visit the Raritan River.
