Interested in a UW iSchool study abroad program in Tahiti this summer? This year’s program will run from August 24 – September 21, 2019 and is a collaboration between TASCHA’s Chris Rothschild and UW’s Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity. Applications are due on February 15, 2019.
This program, which has been running since 2010, will provide cultural immersion in French Polynesia and in particular, Tahiti. Participants will learn about wayfinding through the context of place and identity, with an emphasis on the region’s unique oral storytelling traditions. This course is interdisciplinary in nature, and will draw on the fields of information science, geography, history, and anthropology to explore different systems of knowledge and apply them to the cultural, social, and economic realities of Tahiti.
For more information, please contact Gabriel Gallardo (gabegms @ uw.edu) or Chris Rothschild (chriskr @ uw.edu). To apply and learn more, please visit the UW Study Abroad portal.
