A First Year Experience Seminar -- 1 credit, FREE course

Course description:
Aboriginal Canadian writer Thomas King poses in his book entitled "The Truth About Stories" that stories shape who we are and how we understand others. Weaving together personal narratives, historical stories, racist propaganda, stories of social injustices and protests, religion and politics, King explores the deep roots of storytelling and the current and historical relationships between native and non-native peoples. Stories frame our understanding of the world -- "if we change the stories we live by, we change our lives."
