About the Opportunity
Sponsored by the COVE
and the The Lampert Institute for Civic and Global Affairs
this service-learning trip to Ecuador will examine the ways in which the Otavaleño people assert, maintain, and negotiate identity and agency within ever-shifting regional, national, and global contexts. In conjunction with the Tandana Foundation
, students will work to support specific projects developed by local communities and consider:
- how popular cultures and practices are maintained and negotiated in rural communities;
- how the global movements of information, products, and people effect a local sense of identity, and;
- how individual and community agency is asserted within a globalized economy.
Fees and Aid
The trip costs $500 per student, and financial aid is available. To learn more, join the group directors on Tuesday, February 13, at 4:15 pm in the Keck Center for an information session
