PUCP

Peru is without a doubt one of the most attractive countries in Latin America. Its ecological and cultural diversity, the impressive variety of its landscapes, the cheerful character of its people and its historically rich cities and beautiful archaeological monuments, all combine to make of Peru a unique country in the world. Placed on the central western coast of South America, Peru offers an immense variety of landscapes and climates, result of the uniqueness of its geographical location. Historically Peruvian current territory has also been home to some of the richest pre-Columbian civilizations, characteristically complex societies that achieved extremely high levels of development in terms of their architecture, textiles, stock rearing, ceramics, gold and silver work, among other.

The Pontificia Universidad Cat贸lica del Per煤 (PUCP) is a private, non-profit institution devoted to higher education. It was founded in 1917 and today we have a population of more than 24,000 students (in undergraduate, Master or Doctorate programs). We are among the 25 most important universities in Latin America, and occupy the first position in Peru. The quality of our education is at the core of the university and our students, researchers and professors are the proof of it. In relation to international agreements, PUCP has signed more than 200 of them with important Higher Education Institutions from all over the world. We have, in addition, more than 20 double degree programs, for undergraduate and graduate students, with Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany, the United States and the Netherlands. PUCP is also member of fourteen university networks and associations. PUCP receives a large number of international students who come to study for a semester or for a year and sends students abroad to partner universities on a regular basis. Our University also hosts several special and summer programs. FIELD SCHOOL PROGRAM PERU

Field School Program The Field School Program in Peru provides students with the opportunity to carry out practical work in research programs in the different fields of knowledge where PUCP is involved and which are directed by some of our most prestigious faculty members. This context allows participants to have an enduring, rich and fruitful academic and personal experience. In its ten years Field School Program has received around 300 students, increasing each year the number of participants. We are currently offering 6 different programs in 2014.

Field School Offers

Participating students will have the opportunity to live a unique and intensive field and research experience and have a direct approach to local people, with respect and openness to intercultural learning.

COURSE description

CONTENTS

Field Research will be held in the framework of the San JosĂŠ de Moro Archaeological Program (SJMAP), a program of excavations at the site of San JosĂŠ de Moro, a ceremonial and funerary complex located in the north coast of Peru.

Field School students will assume responsibilities in the scientific work required by the archaeological excavations. Each excavation unit at SJMAP has a qualified professional who is in charge of directing and instructing students of that unit. Furthermore, participating students are also encouraged to make significant decisions which will lead to a better understanding of the archaeological events that take place at the research site.

This site is one of the only Moche cemetery currently under research, which has yield some of the most complex elite burial and ritual settings pertaining to a continuous, 1000 years occupation. Work in the site started in 1991, and is continued to date extending its activities to the northern Jequetepeque valley. The SJMAP is led by Professor Luis Jaime Castillo (Ph.D.C. UCLA), and a team of young archaeologists from Peru, US and Europe. The Program has to date produced numerous publications and is recognized as one of the most outstanding research done in South America.

FIELD SCHOOL PROGRAM PERU

By the end of the program, students will have gone through each one of the stages required to carry out archaeological excavation processes in a systematic manner. Since the beginning of our excavations, students have played an active and very important role in the achievement of our goals. Many of our former students now work on their own archaeological programs in other areas of Peru thanks to the experience they gained at PASJM.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

CONTENTS

The Engineering and Ecological Technologies course will be delivered entirely at Granja Ecológica PUCP in Huyro, which is aimed at the implementation, promotion and development of sustainable technologies for rural residents of Peru. The terrain of 6.5ha has a jungle ecosystem characterized by sunny days year-round,a very marked rainy season and diverse flora and fauna. It has allowed to make this place a space for the cultivation of different native species in their diverse varieties such as mango, tea, tubers, medlar, bamboo, cane, Andean fruit, coffee, cacao, banana, among others. In some cases, Granja Ecológica PUCP is the place of recovery and conservation of the species since they are gradually disappearing from the area due to different reasons. It is just 3 hours from the archaeological ruins of Machu Picchu, which can be also reached walking.

The course consists of three modules: appropriate technologies, renewable energies and crop management. For participants’ learning, these three components will be articulated in such way that thematic coherence will be reflected in daily activities of the course. The modular themes will not be covered independently but in parallel and connected among them.

The course focuses on teaching clean technologies that allow to live comfortably on the farm as well as production technologies to take advantage of local resources. Clean technologies include basic needs such as water, sanitation, lighting, communication, among others, and the latter teach concepts ranging from sowing, cultivation and harvesting of certain tropical products (tea, coffee, and cacao) to the use of renewable energy to operate machines used in industrial processing.

12

FIELD SCHOOL PROGRAM PERU

The methodology of this course is mostly based on the learning from practical experience and daily life within the Granja Ecológica PUCP. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to put into practice the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired, such as renewable energy, agriculture and permaculture in real situations that will enable them to contribute to a sustainable life.

COURSE description

CONTENTS

This course is for students interested in approaching Andean popular culture through music and its various ceremonial and ritual contexts. To achieve this purpose a major cultural region of Peru will be visited: The Sacred Valley of the Incas, an area of ancient Inca and colonial cultural tradition.

After the field trip, students will systematize their information and data in the university lab for their personal use and to preserve a copy in the documentary and audiovisual archive of the Institute of Ethnomusicology (IDE) of the university. The experience gained by students in this course has been the basis for the development of future research topics at their universities.

The Sacred Valley is located in the Cuzco region at 940 miles southeast of Lima. It is named as such for being the preferred residence valley of the Incas because of its high level of productivity of corn, the favorite food of the Andean gods, and its friendly climate if compared with the cold city of Cuzco, the ancient imperial capital. Here we will observe the famous festival of the “Mamacha Carmen� which is held in Pisac, where the participants represent many ethnic dances, of social and mythical origins, accompanied by Indian and mestizo musical ensembles. In the city of Cuzco, we will visit the museum of musical instruments, and we have reserved two days off for students interested to visit the citadel of Machu Picchu and other historical attractions of the region.
