NAS 37 Alaska: American Dreams and Native Realities

Since the time the United States "purchased" Alaska from Russia, this land has been seen by many as the "last frontier"-a place where tough and adventurous Euro-Americans could strike it rich or get away from the negative consequences of civilized living. Using anthropological and historical works as well as fiction, film and other media, this class explores the mythology surrounding the "land of the midnight sun." This myth of the last frontier-in its development-driven as well as conservationist versions-is also contrasted with the ways Alaska Natives have viewed and lived on their land. Open to all classes.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course.

This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
