Additional Details:

If landscape is memory, and time is living, how might we think about the richness of the environs of the university campus? What can it teach us, and how might we begin to bring back the wealth of the abundant land? 

This course is welcoming to all disciplines and backgrounds, and created to engage multiple perspectives in dialogue. wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ [], the Intellectual House, is more than a building on campus: it is the living breath of teachings situated within a rich complex of relationships to the land of the campus. The many types of cultural activities now taking place at wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ provide us with an opportunity to re-imagine the natural environment of the campus, and frame the restoration of cultural resources in terms of relationships.
