Spring Break 2021 - Cancelled 10/21/2020

Japan: "Glocal" Studies- Ehime Prefecture in National and Global Contexts

Led by David Goldstein, IAS | 3 credits | $2,900 Program Fee | Apply by Nov
Ehime Prefecture on the island of Shikoku in southern Japan is similar to the Puget Sound region in many ways: An intriguing blend of urban and rural spaces, away from the largest cities in Japan, and surrounded by beautiful mountains and sea, Ehime--like Western Washington--is home to a unique culture that also has countless connections to the rest of the world. In fact, the founder of the largest Japanese food and goods stores in the U.S.--Uwajimaya in Seattle and Bellevue--was from Ehime. By studying the local history, economy, and culture of this vibrant prefecture, in partnership with Ehime University, we will explore how regions with unique local culture also exemplify a global economy and culture.

Summer Term A​ 2021

Scientific Explorations of Art and Architecture in Italy and France

Led by Andrew Abian, STEM | 6 credits (tentative) | Apply by Jan 30
*** This program is pending approval ***

How can you measure the rotation of the Earth in a closed room? Why are some historic buildings still standing while others have fallen? How do artists use light? (And why do they sometimes fear it?) Explore these questions while visiting key cultural and scientific sites in Italy and France.
