HUMAN 230 - Pacific Northwest Voices

Credits: 5

(H/DSJ) This course offers students a chance to explore diversity in our own backyard! We will consider how the interwoven histories of the Salish Sea (the Puget Sound), the growth of Seattle into a world-class city, and the tensions of the environmental and economic forces of the Kitsap Peninsula (including the region’s military significance) inform and underpin fiction, poetry, and non-fiction narratives. Students will explore how narratives of family, community, local history, and even the Pacific Northwest bioregion affect their own narratives of identity and construction(s) of knowledge. A reading-, writing-, and exploration-intensive course, Pacific Northwest Voices includes a field trip component as well as a cumulative class project.

Prerequisite: ENGL& 101  with grade of 2.0 or better or Instructor Approval.
