Course Description

GLS 592: Storytelling, Identity and Becoming Who We Are

Instructor: Dr. Julie-Ann Scott-Pollock

This course will take the students on a journey to explore how the personal stories we tell form identity and culture. Students will begin with assigned online theoretical readings, asynchronous recorded lectures, and exemplar creative texts and performances. Discussion questions provide a basis to understand how the stories we tell create our identities and how, because our identities are created through our interactions, identity and culture are continually open to revision and reinterpretations as we move through our daily lives, incorporating new experiences and understandings. Students create an original narrative that explores the creation of an aspect of their identity. Final projects can be either written or video recorded.
