Culture & Society: An International Field Experience

Travel to the Dominican Republic - June 2010

  • Interested in learning first-hand about global inequalities, colonialism, and human rights?
  • Want to get to know people who make a difference on world issues like sustainability and human rights?
  • Ready for a life changing experience?

This Spring-semester class studies colonialism, development, and globalization in the Dominican Republic as preparation for a three-week trip in June 2010.

The trip combines classes and hands-on learning about social change, poverty, race relations, human rights, colonialism and neocolonialism, sustainability, and immigration.  We visit two social change organizations and travel with them to urban and rural areas.  Students from IC and Cornell can take part.
