About the class:
In this three-week online course with David Yetman, research social scientist at the University of Arizona, you will wander around Arizona taking in the state’s natural history and the monumental geological forces that have shaped what we see today. The irregularities that form our landscapes reveal a deep and violent geological history, but their size, variety, and majesty have also inspired humans and their imaginations. Over the last twelve thousand years or so, people have related mythical stories and historical events that commemorate the significance of our natural monuments.
