CULTURAL RHETORICS

Syllabus: We focused on Indigenous mapping practices as way to better understand the roles of space and place in the construction of (working class) culture. Using Dylan Miner’s Creating Aztlan, We paid particular attention to how MiXican@s  (Xican@s from Michigan) and Xicanoshinabes (folks who are Xican@ and Anishinaabe) have (re)created the Indigenous place and culture through Indigenous mapping practices like graffiti art.
