I just want to give a brief introduction to this next adventure. For the next four months, I'll be studying climate change (and the politics of food, water, and energy) abroad in Vietnam, Morocco, and Bolivia with 28 other students. The program launches in San Francisco, where we have orientation and learn about American environmental policies, and then go off into the world for a comparative look at how nations are approaching climate change, and how it is affecting people on the ground.

We'll be studying:

  1. ECOLOGY 3010: The Science and Policy of Climate Change,
  2. ECONOMICS 3010: Political Economy and Environmental History, 1492 to the Present,
  3. SOCIOLOGY 3070: Comparative Issues in Food, Water, and Energy, and
  4. ANTHROPOLOGY 3500: Fieldwork Ethics and Comparative Research Methods.

Our itinerary is:

  • United States (San Francisco & surrounding areas)- Jan. 23 - Feb. 5
  • Vietnam (Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City)- Feb. 6 - Mar. 8
  • Morocco (Casablanca, Rabat, Agadir, Marrakech)- Mar. 9 - Apr. 10
  • Bolivia (La Paz, Lake Titicaca, Cochabamba, Chapare)- Apr. 12 - May 15

Stay tuned!
