Rock Creek history

Norman K. Denzin

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This is an experimental, mixed-genre narrative, combining autoethnography with other evocative writing forms, including narratives of the self. Using the techniques of fiction, I tell a story about myself and my experiences with nature, the sacred, and a small Montana river named Rock Creek. Kittridge asks for narratives that embed the self in storied histories of sacred spaces. These stories chart the outlines of an epistemology that stresses the sacredness of human life and its relationship to nature. Accordingly, this performance-based project attempts to enact a sacred epistemology and a form of writing that honors our relationship to nature and the natural world.
