relating to environmental sustainability
Studies in English literature include an eco-literacy component, which serves a growing forum for ecological critique and social commentary. Part of the English III course includes an elective entitled "Literature and Ecology", which encourages students to explore ways in which environmental attitudes are reflected in, and might be influenced by, various strains of literature, including ‘high-brow’, popular, and even non-fiction. In 2004, Dan Wylie founded the annual Literature & Ecology Colloquium, at which interested academics present papers on a selected focus area; this ran for three years in Grahamstown, and then shifted to KwaZulu-Natal.
