The course will include the study of indigenous peoples, ancient peoples, agricultural peoples, and state societies like our own. Major themes include: culture and social diversity, gender, religion, kinship, and politics, and the importance of history and cross-cultural comparison in understanding what it means to be human.

Unmasking Poetry Forms (San Juan Center)
In this four-week Orcas Island class taught by poet Jill McCabe Johnson, we will examine a wide range of poetic forms and explore how different aspects of form, such as stanza, meter, line length, repetition, and appearance on the page, can affect how a poem is read and perceived. The class is designed for writers and readers alike; however, participants will have the option of drafting various poetry forms and sharing them with the class. Jill McCabe Johnson is the author of the poetry books, Revolutions We’d Hoped We’d Outgrown (Finishing Line, 2017) and Diary of the One Swelling Sea (MoonPath, 2013), winner of a Nautilus Book Award, plus the nonfiction chapbook Borderlines (Sweet Publications, 2016). She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific Lutheran University and a PhD in English from the University of NebraskaLincoln. Johnson is the founding director of Artsmith, a non-profit to support the arts. Class will run Thursdays, April 6-27, 3-5:00 pm at the Orcas Library meeting room. Copies of poems will be provided.
