Rwanda: Post-Genocide Restoration and Peacebuilding

This program examines the origins of conflict in Rwanda; the social, human, psychological, and economic impacts of genocide; and the challenges and opportunities of post-conflict restoration. Field visits to genocide memorials, museums, civil society organizations, and commissions working toward reconciliation are an essential part of the program. In addition, you will visit with private investors to explore their contributions to Rwanda’s rapid economic development. You will also learn about post-conflict reconciliation in a very different context during the program’s two-week excursion to northern Uganda. Please visit our website for more information.

Czech Republic: Arts and Social Change

Please visit our website for more information. Work directly with artists and social innovators to create an independent project in visual arts, creative writing, or performing arts practice or theory. Study with a dynamic community of visual, performing, and literary artists, where art and creative dissent have played a decisive role in shaping social and political change. This program will allow you to choose either an arts-based research project that integrates research methods with creative writing or visual or performing arts practice or, alternately, a field-based research project using traditional qualitative research methods. You will be immersed in the Czech Republic’s contemporary art scene and given the opportunity to explore the country’s rich artistic heritage. You will also be challenged to consider the relationship between art, politics, and society in the country’s historic and contemporary contexts.
