The Frontier of Native American Literature: Imaginative Paths to Discovery

A year-long series of workshops for faculty at Dine College that would explore Native American literature.

Fifteen interdisciplinary faculty from three Din? College campuses will conduct seminars through video-conferencing over two semesters to examine Native American literature and ways to use it across the curricula to advance active learning in diverse fields and as a way to challenge students to participate in critical writing in those fields. We will read foundational works in Native fiction and theory, guided by goals that seek a greater understanding of the complex relation that tribal colleges have to Native literature, a greater cohesiveness and communicativeness among faculty who have little opportunity for intellectual interaction, and a better understanding of the role that humanities can play in creating a vibrant and challenging intellectual climate for a community of learners. Visits from two noted scholars will enhance an exciting, intellectual experience that will positively impact our students and help strengthen the continuing growth of a dynamic academic community.
