Section Information for Summer 2022
This course investigates the complex, imaginative relationship between oil –an essential, yet mostly invisible, commodity—and American and Global culture. Using films, novels, and nonfiction, and documentaries from the US and Nigeria this course will explore oil’s cultural presence in our lives. For the summer course we will read a selection from Upton Sinclair's 1926 novel Oil!, view Paul Thomas Anderson's film, There Will Be Blood, Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, and Stephen Gaghan's Syriana, and read Helon Habila's novel Oil on Water. We will also read nonfiction from Lisa Margonelli, Vaclav Smil, Margaret Atwood, and Daniel Yergin.
