New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018


NAS 30.17 Trickster re: mediations-Native America Exploration in media and representation

This course will introduce students to the vibrant world of Native American media exploration, production, and critical intervention.  The students will begin by establishing a working knowledge of historical representations of Native Americans in various colonial visual media.  The introduction of the colonial gaze will be followed by a selective exploration of Native American media productions that reflect indigenous perspectives. Following the historical survey of media and representation the students will engage the return of trickster critiques of colonial cultural myopia.  Those critiques will prepare students for critical assessment of contemporary Native American re:mediation as articulations of self-determination.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. 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.
