Explore the themes of poverty, human rights, and health in global context by traveling to Guatemala. You'll meet with community organizers addressing social justice issues involving: equity of health care access; resistance to transnational mining corporations; land rights and sustainable agriculture;
and the situation of migrants in a global economy. In the process, explore your responsibility to help make a better world.
The prerequisite course, PLSC 390 (Poverty, Human Rights, & Health) is offered in Winter 2016, immediately followed by the 10-day travel course, PLSC 391. The course sequence is co-taught by Profs. Judith Kullberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Richard Stahler-Sholk (email@example.com).
