Mapping Histories Through Writing
Winter 2018 quarter
This course explores the relationship between historical narratives and our own histories, with a focus on writing, cartography, and indigenous culture. 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.
