Field Calculator - how to get current feature class name?

I'm writing a python pre-logic script for use in the field calculator.  One of my function calls needs to know the feature class name - e.g..

 

 

with arcpy.da.SearchCursor("LandUse", "Shape_Area") as cursor:

 

In this example, the Field Calculator has been launched as a right-click on a column of a attribute table of the LandUse feature class.  Rather than hard-wire the feature class name and then have to edit it each time I use the code snippet on a different FC, does arcpy have a method of determining and returning the feature class name for the current context of the field calculator?
