Discover the history, landscape, and culture of the Southwest through this interdisciplinary six-day course investigating topics such as colonization, immigration, tourism, literature, film, and visual arts. We will examine the various ways in which the land and the people of the southwest are defined, internally and externally, and will consider what gives the southwest its essence as a distinct place. This course will include visits to museums, historic landmarks, and other sites as well as Taos and its surrounding landscape; the last day will culminate with the celebration of the Feast Day of San Geronimo at the Taos Pueblo (10:30 A.M.–6 P.M.).
