SUMMER FIELD SCHOOL AND TRAVEL OPPORTUNITY IN INDIA
“I am with the Himalayan Health Exchange, a U.S.-based humanitarian organization that works in the remote Western Himalayan regions of Northern India. Since 2003 we have offered a three-week summer anthropological field school. Our program is very comprehensive and provides an unforgettable and highly productive learning experience for students of anthropology as well as other disciplines. This summer, from June 24-July 15, 2012, we include one week participation in a medical mission travelling through the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. Participants will observe some of the challenges to health and health care delivery in the area. Students will have an intensive and immersive experience in a remarkable cultural region composed of multiple, distinct communities. The logistics and curriculum are carefully planned by H.H.E. Students practice yoga daily and receive substantive lectures (from multiple, professional instructors and the organization’s founder) on topics such as: cultural and environmental aspects of health and medicine, comparative religious beliefs and practices, and the history and development of the region. Students also learn some basics in visual anthropology and how to employ appropriate anthropological perspectives and techniques while in the field.
This really is an incredible program and life experience. We would appreciate it if applicants would contact us by April 15, 2012 so that we can complete our planning for this year.”

As part of both our Common Theme and our team-taught course on War and Peace, we have a special treat tomorrow night – Wednesday, Feb. 25.
Dr. James Marten, Chair of the History Department at Marquette University will be present with us through the use of telecommunications technology. Dr. Marten is the influential author and editor of many books including Children in Colonial America: Children and Youth in America, The Boy of Chancellorville and Other Civil War Stories, Childhood and Child Welfare in the Progressive Era & Muckraking, Lessons of War: The Civil War in Childern’s Magazines, The Children’s Civil War and of course the text we are using in the course – Children and War.
He will speaking about the book and about his own work on children’s lives during the Civil War. He’ll be able to provide a historian’s insight on interpreting children’s feelings, thoughts, experiences and behaviors in the past. It will be an amazing opportunity to ask about different research methodologies.
We are very excited to welcome him and would love to have you join us. We will be in IS 1034 at 5:15 pm. Please come along for an interesting evening.
