Students to Embark on Cultural Studies in Galapagos Islands
2017 Jun 5
Several SU students will spend time in the Galapagos Islands this summer as part of the university's Global Opportunities (GO) program. The experience, titled GalapaGOs, is an interdisciplinary, collaborative course designed to familiarize students with methods, theories, approaches and histories necessary for understanding biological and cultural diversity in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. Theories of evolution, both biological and cultural, are of primary focus, as are understandings of difference and power; historical imagination; gender, sexuality and identity politics; and nationalism, citizenship and globalization.
