Last week (May 12-19, 2012) saw 29 students from four colleges in the Appalachian region of the USA arrive in Salzburg, Austria for the 52nd International Study Program at Schloss Leopoldskron.
Since 2004, Salzburg Global Seminar has gathered American undergraduates from partner colleges for week-long International Study Programs (ISP) covering global citizenship. The ISP provides an intensive international experience for participants to explore issues of worldwide concern and to view them from a perspective both literally and figuratively outside the borders of the United States. Students develop the tools to be more discerning in their assessment of information pertaining to world affairs and to understand what it means to be a “global citizen”.
ISP 52 students came from King College, TN, Ferrum College, VA, West Virginian Wesleyan College, WV and Bennett College for Women, NC, to participate in classes on Mapping Ethnocentrism and Globalization, From Every End of This Earth: The American People in the 20th and 21st Century, Women in Islam and in Africa: Perspectives from Sudan and Beyond, The US of America and the World: Views From a Distance, Corporations as Global Citizens, and The Digital Economy & Brand YOU! The week also involved intensive group work and presentations, as well as an excursion to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site in Dachau, Germany.
