This is a HECUA consortium program. Instructors include HECUA faculty and on-site specialists. The course explores socioeconomic issues in Ecuador as manifested in the country’s growing inequality and the proliferation of new social movements. Particular emphasis will be placed on indigenous rights, gender equality, the protection and management of natural resources, and Ecuador’s new Constitution. Students compare and contrast the Ecuadorian experience with developments in other parts of Latin America. Students gain a firsthand perspective on these dynamics with field work and NGO site visits in and around the beautiful capital city of Quito and in some distant rural communities. For more information see http://hecua.org/j_ecuador.

June 2015
Race in America Then and Now: “Post-Racial” Perspectives on the Civil Rights Movement
Instructor: TBA  Dates: June 9- June 30     Cost: $3200     Application fee: $50 HECUA Fee/$65 GAC Fee upon registration.   Additional Costs:   Prerequisites: GPA of at least 2.75
Many people in the U.S. and around the world have seen the election of President Barack Obama as a sign that racism in America is a thing of the past. America, it is said, is now a “post-racial” society, and has moved beyond a racially divided time. Yet that past was not very long ago. Obama’s election came within the lifetimes of people whose parents were born into slavery in America, and he was elected President less than fifty years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Even after these landmark pieces of legislation became law, in the 1960s many communities of color struggled to find justice and equality in the United States. This program explores that era’s struggles as well as current movements for equality, and dares to ask questions about racial justice in America today. During the one-month program, students meet with civil rights activists who were active in the 1960s and those who are active now, and with lawyers, politicians, educators, and youth to learn about how America’s present is inextricably linked to its past. Field experiences open up connections among issues related to education, incarceration, and distribution of wealth, health care, housing, employment, and the environment.
