Students will first explore theories of intercultural communication, augmented by a focused study on the Greek culture. Then, students will visit Greece during Spring Break 2019, and will finish the semester by completing a collaborative multimedia project in digital storytelling. We are partnering with Athens University Professor Eleni Apospori and her class of Greek Intercultural Communication students for reciprocal interviews on our respective cultures. Studying each other's cultures, discussing our diversity, and participating in these interviews, students will then construct a digital story of their visit to Greece. The collaborative and co-curricular environment demonstrates diversity in action as it chronicles students' first interactions with Greek culture, and reveals how other cultures view the United States. Here is a video from our previous collaboration that explains a bit more about the project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlakFIunnak&feature=youtu.be A new component to this course is the option to either dine with a local resident in their home, or meet with local immigrant counselor to discuss Greece's current diversity and immigration crisis. This aspect of the course presents an immersive experience of Greek culture that gives students the opportunity for greater community engagement.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must contact the program leader, Kasey Hudak.
