Dr. Harrison to guest teach in Public Speaking course

Image from news.uns.purdue.eduThis 60-80 minute workshop will introduce students to the Campbellian monomyth and universal archetypes of human behavior in order to support a deeper understanding of the significance of story in our lives. Students will complete a number of brief online readings and an archetype assessment prior to attending the workshop so that they may be more familiar with both the monomyth and the archetypes. During the workshop we’ll discuss these archetypes and their relationship with “communication, self-expression, self-discovery, empowerment, and change; developing stories to perform with voice and movement” (Lennon, 2013). We’ll then consider applications for activities that utilize archetypes and movement in public performance and self-development. Students will complete the workshop by developing individual or small group “archetype performances”. See entire syllabus here. Workshop is part of Speech 300: Dynamics of Storytelling: Voice, Script, and Movement
