Abstract

Students from the Honors College class on the Everglades will present their research projects. The course is team-taught by linguist Peter A. Machonis and tropical biologist Devon Graham. The class provides an in-depth, hands-on study of issues concerning Everglades National Park by examining not only the Everglades eco-system and the politics surrounding its conservation, but also literature and art about the Everglades. It requires active participation from each student and can be physically challenging, since classes take place outdoors, rain or shine, and involve physical activities such as hiking, biking, canoeing, and walking through the swamp or slough slogging.
