As some of you know, I am going to Amman, Jordan with several colleagues as part of a Fullbright-Hayes Group Projects Abroad Program funded through the Department of Education. This is one of the many activities associated with our new Center for Middle East Studies and Partnerships here at UWGB, and one of three projects specifically initiated in Jordan.
It will be my first trip to Jordan; also my first trip to the Middle East, my first trip to an Arab country and my first time to a predominantly Muslim country. I’m very hopeful that it will be the first trip of many, many trips to Jordan. I plan that this will be the first post of many posts, too! I am obviously not a very good blogger, but I will make a sincere effort to post here regularly from Amman. The countdown begins today . . . One more week until we leave!
