Class description

DC III: Wild in the Northwest This class will explore the Pacific Northwest and provide a short introduction to cultural anthropology by looking at how peoples of the region have experienced and defined wildness as an aspect of nature, but also as an aspect of the human, both sacred and feared. You will learn about Northwest cultures such as the whalers working the Bering Sea millennia ago, timberworkers of the early twentieth century, and the global influences of Northwest rock and roll while also investigating the central role of wildness to our understandings of nature and culture, both within us and without.
