In addition to learning about and discussing the relevance of auto-ethnography within the study of contemporary Paganism, each student will create an artistic project from an autoethnographic space, actually participating in using this research methodology while creating a finished narrative work. There will be a variety of ways to accomplish this including, but not limited to: written or visual work, audio/ video pieces, photography/ performance or through a combination of approaches. Artists and non-artists alike will be guided through a process that will result in an artistic experience that will deepen the internal discussion of what being Pagan means to us as individuals as well as collectively in our community.
