This embedded study abroad course is a 1-credit, 16-day long trip conducted after the end of the Fall 2023 semester. Students will participate in a semester-long, 3-credit honors seminar that will introduce topics and themes to be addressed during the trip.
This seminar will examine the strategic ways in which leaders have sought to institutionalize their activism and public dissent. The class will utilize an interactive discussion format. On a macro-level, the focus will include founders of civil and human rights organizations and other social change pressure groups. On a micro-level, we will contrast leadership roles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his co-founding of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and Nelson Mandela and his leadership role in the African National Congress (ANC); and historic election as the first fully democratic president of South Africa.
