This website contains information for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) class “Exploring Place” taught by Dr. Heidi LaMoreaux at Sonoma State University from March 26-April 30, 2014.
The class explores “Place” with a focus on Sonoma County, California as part of “Place Matters,” a special series of events to take place Summer 2014 at Sonoma State University (http://www.sonoma.edu/exed/olli/2014-place-project.html).
Exploring Place examines place through the lenses of Place as Location, Place as History, Place as Memory/Legacy, Place as Story, Place as Identity, and Place as Community. The class is designed to be interactive and include short lectures, group discussions, and hands-on activities.
This website will include course materials (handouts, suggested readings, and activities), class projects, and information about Sonoma County gathered by the class. Enjoy!
