This is a hybrid course that includes an introduction in the second half of the spring semester at Elon, then begins online at the beginning of summer term (June 2) and ends on-location in Alaska.

Students will explore the ways different native and non-native peoples have perceived Alaska and examine how their own perceptions of Alaska have been constructed.
