Section Description

This course explores the deep entanglement between humans and honey bees across a range of perspectives and ways of knowing. Drawing on the natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, and spirituality, we will immerse ourselves in the life of honey bees to explore the animating questions of this class: What are honey bees? What are they asking of us? What can we learn alongside them about living sustainably on earth? These lines of inquiry will take us on a multidisciplinary journey through the tapestry of human/honey bee cultures. In the process, you may discover your own guiding questions to carry you forward. There are two required texts and one optional text for this class. Required: The Buzz about Bees: Biology of a Superorganism by J├╝rgen Tautz Song of Increase: Listening to the Wisdom of Honeybees for Kinder Beekeeping and a Better World by Jacqueline Freeman Optional: The Lives of Bees: The Untold Story of the Honey Bee in the Wild by Thomas D. Seeley
