Sacred Geographies
Credit Hours: 
1
Course Description: 
This course seeks to engage students in geographical literacy of one of the most important dimensions to understand the 'essence of place' as the spiritual or sacred realm. This Odyssey seminar will train in broader ways to understand conservation efforts in the plexus of body, mind and spirit, fused to the need of developing identity markers of ethnoecological importance for indigenous revival. Furthermore, it will train to evaluate the 'essence of self' by analyzing how mythologies of the sublime articulate identity markers, such as in the indigenous people, who still relate to the sacred as metageographical realm.
