INDG-2106: Oral and Literary Storywork

We invite community members to join our Community Engagement Courses. As you immerse yourself in the course content of your choosing, you will have the opportunity to connect with both the course instructor and Nipissing students. There is no requirement to submit coursework, nor will you receive a grade for participating in the course. Students learn the techniques, methods of persuasion, and holistic philosophies that animate the oral tradition while tracing the influences of orality to contemporary literary works. Oral storytelling is especially significant in Indigenous communities for the continuation of tradition and the dissemination of creation stories and other cultural teachings. By working with stories in an Indigenous context, students gain valuable knowledge that enhances their communication skills. This course may be credited towards English Studies.
