DC III: Wild in the Northwest This class will explore the Pacific Northwest using anthropology as a lens to look at wildness in three cultures (with a focus on beliefs about the forest and sea): Native American, timberworkers of the early twentieth century, and that of Northwest Rock'n'roll from the 1960s through the present. You will learn about cultures of the region, from the appearance of whaling cultures on the Bering Sea millennia ago, through the history of the song "Louie Louie" and the global influences of Northwest Rock and Roll.
