Program Description:
URBAN NAVIGATION AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP: GENTRIFICATION, SOCIAL MOVEMENTS, AND THE ARTS IN GERMANY

Germany Banner Learning Abroad




 
 

The Program
What does it mean to be a urban navigator and global citizen? This learning abroad course will answer those questions with a hands-on exploration of urban change in Germany. We will take a 10-day journey together, traversing one of the most fascinating countries by plane, train, bus, subway, and on foot. We will spend 3 days in each city, beginning with Berlin in the Northeast, then traveling by train to Hamburg in the North, and finally K?ln in the Midwest. Our goal is to marry an intellectual exploration of Germany with a deep and intense experience together, on the ground. The intellectual component of the course will focus on the urban change that has been taking place across Germany and the impact that has had on neighborhoods, the economy, the people, and the many forms of resistance in response. Students will ponder gentrification, social movements, and the extensive use of thes)
