NCE 335: United States: Northwest Narratives

seattle 2
seattle 3 revised
seattle 4
This course focuses on indigenous cultures of the Northwest, specifically the areas from Seattle to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We will focus on narrative as a means of understanding culture. Oral and written narratives as well as those expressed through indigenous artistic tradition in these regions will help us think about how we "story" our lives and those of others. Using narratives as our foundation, we will investigate the cultural dimensions of human communication for the purpose of gaining a better understanding of the ways in which shared patterns of perception and belief affect the ways we create and share meaning. We will examine the complex relationship between culture and communication from a variety of conceptual perspectives.
