Cultural Revitalization and Community Building
Mizutani Yuka, Professor
Center for Global Education and Discovery
In this course, students read selected articles, watch video lectures, and participate in online discussion forums and other activities. As a part of this course, students will have an opportunity to join in a special guest lecture taught by a specialist in this field.
This course is designed for students interested in cultural revitalization, community building, and contemporary topics that Indigenous peoples today face. In this course, students will develop ideas on cultural revitalization and community (re)building by learning about cases of Indigenous peoples in North America and a part of the Pacific islands, focusing on topics in the U.S. territory. Many articles selected for reading assignments in this course are written by Indigenous writers, researchers, and activists.
