The Anishinaabe Land-based Learning and the Arts is an intensive course that brings together arts-based approaches with land-based learning in the context of The Great Lakes Region. Land-based learning is an integral part of Indigenous knowledge, as understanding through the land cannot be replicated in the classroom. This course is for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students who would like to deepen their understanding of the land and waters of the Great Lakes region and expand their understanding of current environmental issues in the context of Indigenous knowledge. The course will also help students bring these ideas and issues into their arts-based practices while simultaneously learning how to respect the boundaries of Indigenous knowledges that are not necessarily theirs to be shared.

(Appication closed) ACMD98H3F LEC 01 - Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany
This condensed course (May-June 2022) allows students to study the Oberammergau Passion Play and experience it first-hand. We will investigate this nearly 400-year-old tradition, why it persists, and how it is changing. In Oberammergau, we’ll not only see the play; we’ll also interview cast members, musicians, administrators, audience members, and others in the town. We will seek to better understand what the play means to them, how the tradition is changing, and how the production influences their understanding of this mythic narrative.
