FLPA HAWAII & PHILIPPINES Imperial Bodies in the Pacific
Are you interested in learning more about Asia and the Pacific? Are you curious about the relationship between health and power? Do you want first-hand experience studying these things while traveling through the mountains and over the ocean?
This program is an intensive study of empire and bodies in the Pacific. We are specifically interested in encouraging students to think about how colonization has shaped the past and present of local peoples with regard to the health of physical bodies (individual and population level); bodies of land and water; bodies of knowledge, art, and data; and bodies of education and government. In order to study these issues, we will complete a preparation week (fully online), three weeks of travel in Hawaii (1 week) and the Philippines (2 weeks), and a finals period (fully online).
This program was designed to meet 2 requirements for the Magis Core: students will earn 3 credits of Intersections credit through the History course and 3 credits of Doing Social Science with the Anthropology course (6 credits total).
