CORE: Spring Semester Series
The International Studies Office with the Dept. of Anthropology and Program in Global Development Studies has developed a series of seminars and short courses in crossing cultures – not just sight-seeing around the world, but understanding people and thriving in other parts of the global economy. Facilitated by a team of field ethnographers and ethnolinguists, CORE is a starting point for cross-cultural engagement rather than a comprehensive course and is ideal for anyone planning to study, work, or live abroad and who is looking for conceptual tools to demystify the experience and make it worth the while.
