How do people make sense of their worlds and experiences? When you
hear people talk about strange lights in the sky or visitors in the
night, how do you judge the validity of their story?
Offering “Intensive Writing” credit (which you need to graduate),
this course brings folk beliefs into conversation with scientific
method, and examines the different ways in which people come to view
or understand the uncanny.  But beware: this class has been known
to “freak people out!”  Also, register early, this class WILL fill
up!
