Mountain Montana  

Through narrative and photography, students will be introduced or reacquainted to the human and natural habitat of western Montana. Lectures will involve discussions of place and history (time and space will not be separated). Who arrived in these areas first and why. And how did the human occupancy evolve over time – who resides in these places now and what do they do to make a living. Mountain ranges, rivers and valleys extending westward from the Continental Divide will be explored. All regions of northwest Montana as well as topography south of Missoula through the Bitterroot and Big Hole River valleys will be included. In terms of antiquity, each place played a specific role in building the foundation of modern-day Montana. Logging, mining and agriculture; they all blended to create the whole that is now Big Sky Country. Outcome: Once students complete this course of study, they will be able to travel throughout this human habitat knowing what they are looking at is more than just scenery. Final day discussions will review all of the possibilities within easy reach of campus.

Course meets Monday, August 3 - Friday, August 14, 9:00 a.m. - noon, at the University of Montana, Stone Hall 304. There will also be field trips to various locations near Missoula.
