FOLK 009 301 Together Let Us Sweetly Live
Lecture: Tuesday and Thursday 5:00-6:30 p.m.
Requirements: Fulfills the College Writing Requirement
Americans often are thought of as the most individualistic of peoples: we live in residential areas where we often do not even know our own neighbors, while single-person households are more and more common. Still, we generally find ourselves, as others around the globe do, most fulfilled when we live our lives embedded in a rich community life. In this course students will learn to observe a community in action, to research some of that community's historical background, to identify the principles that form the heart and soul of that community, and to listen to and record some of the community's expressive culture. We will focus on writing about this group in a compelling way that will be satisfying to our academic audiences, to members of the communities with which we work, and to ourselves.
