|Course:||Increase Engagement Through Absent Narratives 2013|
The Minnesota Humanities Center’s online self-study course, Increase Engagement Through Absent Narratives, introduces participants to the humanities approach through Absent Narratives. It begins with an understanding of one’s relationship to place and privileges experiences of human beings in their totality. We rely on Humanities content as expressed in literature, history, and the arts to understand Absent Narratives as human experiences. Each individual and community has a unique narrative to hear and a unique contribution to make. Participants work through Absent Narratives content through audio and video examples, exercises, and guided reflection. These experiences become the foundation for incorporating Absent Narratives into life, workplace, community, and curriculum.
