ANT 288: Storytelling and Heritage
Join us in a semester-long collaborative course with students in Mexico. Students are invited to apply for this grant-funded opportunity, designed to increase study abroad participation at SUNY Broome.
This course will focus on how storytelling helps us understand heritage. Students will explore myth and folklore; origin stories; oral history and urban legends; autobiographies and journalism; and film, photography and digital storytelling. These topics will be used as ways to explore and understand different cultures.
