UNCP 5523 Capstone: Telling Our Stories, Living Our Lives (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Our lives take shape and meaning from the stories that we tell ourselves about what it means to be a man or a woman, what is worth doing in a life, and who or what is ultimately valuable and trustworthy. In this course, we shall investigate our own life narratives by looking at significant myths that derive from religion, culture, and our families. We shall read works in developmental psychology, cultural anthropology, and narrative theology. We shall also use selected fiction and film.
