In this course, students will explore the various cultures of the American Southwest with a particular focus on Indigenous voices. You’ll examine the various channels through which these communicate their stories and look into the past, present, and futures of those communities.
Before departing, students will participate in a robust orientation led by Klein GO staff and the faculty program leader. They will be introduced to the New Mexican cultures that the program focuses on and will begin to prepare for the travel element of the course.
Students will earn three credits in the program, which is structured as follows.
- Spring semester course with travel to New Mexico over spring break
- Students will stay the historic Ghost Ranch in rural New Mexico, the former home of the artist Georgia O’Keeffe
- No previous experience with art, multimedia or photography tools is necessary. Students will be able to use tools already available to them, such as a smartphone, to capture visuals and translate them into stories and class projects.
