Cartography of Story
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
This course explores the relationship between historical narratives, our own histories, and how cartography (mapping) can be an integral element to telling a story. With a focus on writing, cartography, and indigenous culture in North America, students will create a mapped story generated from their own life, a period in history, a place, or an event of their choosing. It is intended to create discourse around the indigenous memoir and braided-essay as historical narrative in relationship to self, community, culture, and worldview. Students will craft their own written narrative, as well as a critical analysis of the course readings and seminars. The goal of the course is to identify voice, practice critical thinking through an indigenous lens, and cultivate clear, compelling writing as expression of self. The course is inclusive and any student interested in cartography, indigenous history, and writing is welcome.
