USask launches Certificate in the Study of Indigenous Storytelling

February 10, 2019

The University of Saskatchewan will provide a space for Indigenous storytelling from multiple disciplinary and culturally-specific perspectives through a new Certificate in Indigenous Storytelling. A USask release explains that courses will focus on how methods of telling and recording Indigenous stories impact their dissemination and reception. “We hope that learning through the lens of Indigenous storytelling will help to provide an understanding of the past, the present and the future,” said Wendy Roy, Head of USask’s Department of English. USask adds that the departments of Indigenous studies, English, and Drama collaboratively developed the program, and that registration is open to all USask students. USask (SK)
