Greg Koutnik enjoys cultivating open, engaged, and critical discussions in his seminars to help students come to a better understanding of their own political perspectives as well as those of others.
This semester he is teaching introductory courses in political theory and U.S. politics as well as an advanced seminar on environmental political thought.
Professor Koutnik’s research focuses on environmental political theory and U.S. political thought with an eye to questions of environmental stewardship, property rights, and human belonging in the landscape. His research focuses especially on conservationist and agrarian environmentalists like Aldo Leopold and Wendell Berry and the possibilities of an ecological populism.
