This course uses contemplative practices to deepen students' understanding of past and present relationships between humans and other animals in what is now the United States. In particular, it includes: 1) overhauling a current seminar to incorporate contemplative practices; 2) designing an upper-level course in animal history; 3) creating a set of teaching materials comprising a course "doer" that integrates reading, contemplative practices, and writing assignments; and 4) sharing the results with university and K-12 faculty through publications and workshops.
