Still need to fulfill a UGS Signature Course Requirement? This three-week program offers students a unique opportunity to check that box for their degree plan while enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime study abroad experience! This program offers students the opportunity to explore complicated and often abstract issues of social justice through the personal stories and artwork of some of Mexico's most renowned indigenous folk artists and muralists. The faculty instructor, an experienced museum curator and anthropologist, will guide students on weekly field trips throughout the Oaxaca Valley of south-central Mexico to the homes, workshops, and businesses of master artists. Students will learn to use the anthropologists' toolkit of documentation, interpretation, and participant observation to create digital stories exploring the multiple social and political meanings and uses of today's traditional handmade arts.
