APPLES Global Course Guanajuato (GLBL 382)

This 3 credit spring course combines ethnographic methods, oral history, and service-learning to examine Latin American migrant perspectives. Students research and work with migrants in North Carolina and spend spring break in migrants’ home communities in Guanajuato, Mexico.

Franquote

The course addresses ethical and practical aspects of the ethnographic method, which includes the preparation, transaction, and transcription of interviews. This course is designed for upper level students (Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors) and is also open to graduate students. Strong knowledge of Spanish is highly recommended. Students must be prepared to volunteer at a campus or community organization that works with migrant issues. Digital audio recorders are required. Above all, students must be motivated by a strong desire to better understand transnational migration issues.

Estimated cost of the Mexico trip: $1400. We offer several need-based scholarships for students.
