ANTH 211 - Learning with Indigenous Material Culture

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
Oberlin College is home to a small but important collection of 19th century cultural objects made by indigenous peoples across Arctic North America. The collection was originally obtained by Smithsonian naturalists, but today provides an avenue for both indigenous knowledge repatriation and object-centered learning within a liberal arts context. This course combines hands-on study of the Arctic Collection with consultation with an indigenous knowledge bearer. Themes to be explored along the way include co-curation, indigenous ‘maker movements’ and knowledge repatriation, physical repatriation and the law, and digital approaches to democratizing access to physical collections.Required course for Reimagining Maker Culture(s): from fabrication to curation: StudiOC learning community.
