Cross-pollination: Art & Sex through the Lens of Botany.

Offered as a sophomore-level Integrated Perspectives course at Bucknell University, Art & Sex Through the Lens Botany integrates the professional perspectives of a visual artist and a botanist into one course that seeks to impart the importance of making connections across disciplines and the value of visual literacy across academic lines. The course introduces foundational concepts in each field and encourages students to integrate these different systems of knowledge and to explore their intersections. We hope that our interdisciplinary approach to botany and to creating art will not only give students a new appreciation and understanding for each field, but also an awareness of the ways they can contribute meaningfully to cultural dialogue (including on topics in human sexuality) through the integration of science and art.
