Though daily life in Hong Kong is distinctly fast-paced, there is another dimension you will discover: the deep cultural connections that center on family, friends, celebration, and tradition.

We live in a world challenged by conflict. We see the traumas and traces of war, colonialism, and class, ethnic, and racial division, inscribed across the globe on bodies, landscapes, psyches, economic and social formations, and material cultures. Collectively, we search for ways to reduce violence as well as to address the outcomes of conflict. A new, fall-only program based in Wroclaw, Poland offers you a special opportunity to live in an exciting Central European metropolis, to study with a close cohort of student interested in similar subjects, to learn from dynamic faculty, and to shape individual research projects. A semester-long program based in Wroclaw, Poland, with trips to Berlin. Dresden, Prague, Krakow, Warsaw, Vilnius, and Auschwitz, The Culture and Politics of Reconciliation will tackle questions such as: How does a region with a complex, divided, and violence-ridden history find ways of recognizing and coming to terms with this history while also moving forward?

What role can students and teachers play in local processes of reconciliation and in building a more just future? (fall only)
Today, Italy is experiencing a new wave of immigration as well as the effects of a widespread downturn in the economy. Disability studies, as a field of inquiry, have also begun to emerge in Italy. At the same time, new ways of labeling students and new concerns about accountability and achievement are influencing educational policy and practice in Italy. Thus, the implementation and meanings of integration (or inclusion) take on new meanings in the midst of these changes, making this a very significant time to be studying and observing inclusion and literacy instruction in Italy.
