LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Buenos Aires—Music, Film and Culture in the Global City JULY 4–31, 2017 ANA PELUFFO (aopeluffo@ucdavis.edu)

Spanish 175, 198 (Taught in English) Argentina—Buenos Aires In this program, we will study how Buenos Aires has been imagined and represented by contemporary writers, filmmakers, visual artists, musicians, and photographers. Moving freely in and out of the classroom setting, we will encounter firsthand the city’s many cultural offerings: eclectic architecture, film and music festivals, theaters, and world famous street art. The close study of the city’s vibrant and cosmopolitan culture will allow for a deeper understanding of Argentina’s complex history and its relationship to other Latin American countries.

Cuba—Narratives of Resistance AUGUST 2–30, 2017 RAQUEL SCHERR (rlscherr@ucdavis.edu)

Comparative Literature 165S, 198 Cuba—Havana Since the Spanish conquest, Cuba has been a major site of resistance—first against Spain, and later against the United States. On our journey to Havana, Cuba, we will examine various narratives of resistance with regards to slavery, rebellion, and revolution as they have been articulated across different media platforms. We will immerse ourselves in Cuban culture by reading Cuban literature, listening to Afro-Cuban music, watching Cuban films, and visiting locations and institutions that shed light on Cuba’s political and cultural history of resistance. We will also examine how U.S. thinkers and writers have used Cuba and its revolutions as a model of resistance against racism and oppression.

LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Travelers in Greece JUNE 27 – JULY 25, 2017 ALIKI DRAGONA (apdragona@ucdavis.edu)

English 139, 198 Greece—Athens, Nafplion, Hydra, Mykonos When the god of sea and the goddess of wisdom competed for patronage of the great city, Poseidon, striking his trident to the ground, offered water. Athena planted an olive tree becoming the patron deity of Athens, the starting point of our program. Through several field trips to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the program will take students from Athens to the oracle of Delphi and the monasteries of Mystras to the olive groves of the Peloponnese and the kingdom of the Myceneans. Crossing the Aegean Sea, our class will conclude on the islands of Hydra and Mykonos. Traveling the same lands with the American and Greek writers (in translation) the class will be reading, students will examine the intersections of a rich past and a complex present in a land where the gods still speak.

Portugal—Hidden Gem JULY 2–29, 2017 ROBERT NEWCOMB (rpnewcomb@ucdavis.edu), LEO BERNUCCI (lmbernucci@ucdavis.edu)

Portuguese 161, 198 (Taught in English) Portugal—Porto With a rich history and beautiful beaches and countryside, Portugal is an overlooked gem that is quietly emerging as a “go to” destination. The program will be based at Porto, a friendly city with a pleasant coastal climate that will serve as our jumping-off point for an exploration of Portuguese culture, literature, and society. Coursework will be complemented by guest talks, museum and gallery visits, and long weekend trips to Lisbon, Portuguese wine country, the Atlantic coast, and the rolling hills of the Alentejo region. Learn about one of Europe’s most fascinating cultures while eating delicious food, trying local pastries, listening to fado, and sipping an espresso! No knowledge of Portuguese is necessary. summerabroad.ucdavis.edu | SUMMER ABROAD 2017

LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Australia—Urban to Outback JUNE 24 – JULY 22, 2017 ERIC SCHROEDER (ejschroeder@ucdavis.edu)

English 139, Humanities 198 Australia—Melbourne, Darwin, Kakadu National Park During our three weeks in Melbourne and one week in the remote outback, we will encounter Australia’s natural wonders and cultural complexities by examining its literature, history, film, environment, and wildlife. Readings will focus on themes of individual and national identity and the tensions between a colonial and an indigenous population. We will visit museums, art galleries, botanical parks, and nature reserves in and around Melbourne. We will spend time in Darwin, a beach town that is the gateway to the outback and we’ll travel to the amazing Kakadu National Park, a World Heritage Site for both its Aboriginal rock art and its unique flora and fauna. You will be thrilled by close observations of marsupials, dingos, crocodiles, water buffalo, and birds in their natural habitat.

Mexico—Literary and Social Movements in Chiapas AUGUST 3 – SEPTEMBER 1, 2017 INES HERNANDEZ-AVILA (ighernandez@ucdavis.edu)

Native American Studies 184, 198 Mexico—Chiapas Study contemporary Mayan and Zoque literary and social movements while living in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas. We will stay at a local hotel near the center of the city, within walking distance of cultural centers, restaurants, and historic sites of interest. Since 1994, the state is home to the EZLN, the Zapatista Army of National Liberation. The EZLN carries out its struggle through the power of the word. Students will visit Zapatista autonomous communities and regional indigenous cultural centers in Mayan communities. Students will meet and interact with Mayan and Zoque writers and intellectuals. We will visit CELALI, the state center for indigenous languages, art, and literatures, and FOMMA, a Mayan woman’s center and performance group, as well as the sacred site of Palenque, and other natural sites.

LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Taiwan Through Literature and Film JULY 3–30, 2017 MICHELLE YEH (mmyeh@ucdavis.edu)

Chinese 109G, 198 (Taught in English) Taiwan—Taipei Taiwan has produced some of the greatest Chinese literature and film in modern times, such as works by internationally renowned writers Bai Xianyong and Yang Mu and directors Hou Hsiao-hsien and Ang Lee. Taiwan is also a land of dramatic contrasts: a thriving IT industry existing side-by-side with the ancient arts of calligraphy and tea ceremony; “101”— the second tallest skyscraper in the world—side by side with Buddhist temples and Daoist shrines; a bustling urban culture side by side with breathtaking natural beauty. This program offers a unique opportunity to study Taiwan literature, film, and art by integrating readings, film screenings, conversations with leading poets, writers, and scholars as well as private lessons in calligraphy and tea. In addition, field trips to the National Palace Museum (with the best collection of Chinese art in the world!), sites showcasing different ethnic cultures, and performances are both fun and educational.

Palaces of the Gods—South India AUGUST 12 – SEPTEMBER 11, 2017 ARCHANA VENKATESAN (avenkatesan@ucdavis.edu)

Comparative Literature 180S, 198 or Religious Studies 198 India— Pondicherry This program examines the rich textual and visual cultures of India with a specific focus on South India. Students will stay in the French colonial sea-side city of Pondicherry, the home of a cosmopolitan and international population. As India can be overwhelming for the first time visitor, Pondicherry presents a happy medium, a fact reflected in the city’s urban planning. The French Quarter is European in architecture and urban design, while the Tamil Quarter, like most Indian cities, is busy, crowded, and noisy. Activities include several field trips to some of the most important and earliest archaeological sites in South India. Many of these monuments are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. summerabroad.ucdavis.edu | SUMMER ABROAD 2017

LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Oxford—Portal to Fantasy JUNE 24 – JULY 22, 2017 KARMA WALTONEN (kjwaltonen@ucdavis.edu)

English 163S, 198 United Kingdom—Oxford Ever since Alice fell down the rabbit-hole on the grounds of Christ Church College, Oxford has been at the center of modern fantasy literature. Oxford was home not only to Lewis Carroll, but also to C.S. Lewis, Deborah Harkness, J.R.R. Tolkien, Diana Wynne Jones, and Philip Pullman. Even J.K. Rowling is rolled up in the Oxford mythos, since the Potter films use many Oxford locations. We will read novels from each author, considering how the “City of Dreaming Spires” has shaped their work and question how these fantasies themselves have shaped the modern imagination and why they have become so central to our times. We will also visit the world of fandom, taking in Harry Potter tourism, visiting webworlds, and even trekking through landscape that inspired Narnia and the Shire.

Scottish Tales JUNE 24 – JULY 21, 2017 DAVID MASIEL (drmasiel@ucdavis.edu)

English 163, 198 UK— Edinburgh The supernatural figures largely in Scotland’s literature and culture. Scottish ballads are filled with stories of strange creatures and weird doings. Scottish castles are filled with ghosts and spirits. Witches wander through Shakespeare’s Macbeth and the poetry of Robert Burns. There is a Scottish Frankenstein. Jekyll becomes Hyde. And the devil lurks everywhere. Scottish Tales will study the literature, films, and culture of Scotland, examining its supernatural component from the earliest ballads to contemporary cinema. Set in Edinburgh, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, the program will include visits to castles, tours of the city, a ghost walk at night, a magic show, and a field trip to Glasgow. We’ll also spend two nights in the Scottish Highlands and take a cruise on Loch Ness, where rumor has it a creature lurks.

Americans in Paris

AUGUST 2 – SEPTEMBER 1, 2017

JULY 1–29, 2017

JAMES MCELROY (jpmcelroy@ucdavis.edu)

RAQUEL SCHERR (rlscherr@ucdavis.edu)

English 138, 198

Comparative Literature 180S, 198

Ireland, France, Spain This program will introduce students to that Celtic strain—in literature, culture, language, music, and politics—that characterizes three different countries. By visiting and living in all three countries—Ireland, France, Spain—over a four-week period, students will get an opportunity to see, up-close and personal, some of the most stunning landscapes in Europe and to meet some of the most interesting people around: people who love to celebrate their unique Celtic heritage in an assembly of words and music. Students will also get an opportunity to taste the culinary delights that are native to the Celtic regions of Europe...Galettes (Rennes), Pulpo Gallego (Santiago), Coddle (Dublin).

France—Paris Thomas Jefferson wrote that, “[A] walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life.” Exploring the city that mesmerized both Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, who were the first Americans in Paris, we will examine why writers, from Jefferson to James Baldwin, wrote about Paris; why jazz musicians Sidney Bêchet and Cole Porter composed music in Paris; why Josephine Baker danced in Paris and became—along with Schiaparelli and Coco Chanel—a fashion icon; and why filmmakers such as Sophia Coppola and Woody Allen have featured Paris in their films. We will learn to read the city and report on its culture from the vantage point of young 21st-century Americans in Paris, and ask whether, still, as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “[the] best of America drifts to Paris,” and “The American in Paris is the best American.”

LITERATURE AND CULTURE

Celtic Connections

The Grand Tour JULY 1–29, 2017 JOHN STENZEL (jastenzel@ucdavis.edu)

Humanities 180, 198 United Kingdom, France, Italy This program introduces students to the Grand Tour—a voyage through France and Italy undertaken by young Englishmen (and eventually, women) of the 17th and 18th centuries. The Grand Tour was designed to broaden the horizons of elite British youth by introducing them to continental languages and diplomacy, art and architecture, nature, culture, and geography—it was, in short, the culmination of an aristocratic education. We start in London and, following in the footsteps of the young men and women of a bygone era, we will make stops in Paris, Chamonix-Mont Blanc, and Rome. At each stage of our journey, we will retrace the literary, cultural, and artistic itinerary of the young people who took the Grand Tour centuries ago to learn more about the wide, wild world and their own privileged place within it. summerabroad.ucdavis.edu | SUMMER ABROAD 2017

HISTORY AND CULTURE

Human Rights and Democracy in Chile JULY 1–29, 2017 MICHAEL LAZZARA (mjlazzara@ucdavis.edu)

Spanish 175, 198 (Taught in English) Chile—Santiago Forty-four years after General Pinochet’s military coup overthrew President Salvador Allende’s democratically-elected government, Chile stands as a symbol of the horrors of state terror, the power of grassroots mobilization, the struggle for justice, and the challenges of forging democracy after dictatorship. This program explores the battles being waged over history, the courage of human rights activists, the quest for truth and justice, and the role of powerful social movements in deepening democracy. Students live with host families; interact with important politicians, activists, artists, and academics; and work toward a complex vision of Chile today. The program’s home base is the University of Chile, but the country will be your classroom. Field trips include visits to significant historical sites, the city of Valparaíso, and the homes of Nobel poet Pablo Neruda. No knowledge of Spanish is required.

Into the Andes—History, Environment, Culture JUNE 19 – JULY 17, 2017 JORDAN LAUHON (jlauhon@ucdavis.edu)

History 162 or 103, 198 Peru—Cuzco Based in Cuzco, Peru, this interdisciplinary program explores the environmental history and culture of the Andean region from pre-Hispanic time to the present. Readings and lectures will be complimented by frequent field trips, including trips to Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. Housing with a local NGO, immersive cultural experiences, and lectures by leading specialists will shed light on the changing relations between people and nature in the Andes. How did the Inca harness the Andean environment to rule the greatest empire in the world by 1492? How did the Atlantic exchange of peoples, plants, animals, and disease unleashed by the Spanish conquest alter life in the Andes? What can Andean societies teach us about global climate change today? Optional Spanish and Quechua lessons will be available.

At the Crossroads of Gender and Communication

AUGUST 1–31, 2017

JUNE 24 – JULY 22, 2017

KATHY STUART (kestuart@ucdavis.edu)

NICHOLAS A. PALOMARES (napalomares@ucdavis.edu)

History 102S, 198

Communication 111, 198

Austria—Vienna Vienna, one of Europe’s most magnificent capitals, is our home base. We hike the Austrian Alps and take a boat trip along the Danube River through a stunningly beautiful winegrowing region. Gateway to Eastern Europe, Vienna saw epic battles between Christians and Muslims, as Ottoman Turks advanced west. Mozart and Beethoven composed in Vienna, a musical capital home to more classical composers than any other city. Sigmund Freud and Gustav Klimt made Vienna the birthplace of “modernity” around 1900. For centuries a center of Jewish culture, Vienna saw the destruction of its flourishing Jewish community after Nazi annexation in 1938. We visit Austria’s most notorious concentration camp, Mauthausen. In the Cold War, Vienna, officially “neutral,” became a United Nations headquarter—and a hotbed of international espionage. With the fall of the iron curtain, it is again a meeting point between East and West.

United Kingdom—London Gender and communication thrive at a dynamic crossroads. The program introduces students to the relationship between gender and communication in a locale— London—with a deep history and culture that is intellectually and experientially stimulating. Students will learn concepts related to gender and communication, immerse themselves in their surroundings by having experiences directly related to class material, and compare and contrast the U.S. and U.K. Example topics include gender roles in society; language differences; stereotypes; friendships and romantic relationships; leadership; glass ceiling; texting, Facebook, and computer-mediated communication; and gendered representations in the media. Students will visit the British Museum, National Gallery, Hampton Court, and Science Museum (most with tailored tours) and see how gender is portrayed in a movie and a play.

HISTORY AND CULTURE

Vienna—Crossroads of Central Europe

Rome—Art, Culture, History in the Eternal City JUNE 20 – JULY 17, 2017 JAY GROSSI (jgrossi@ucdavis.edu)

Italian 107S, 198 (Taught in English) Italy—Rome The classroom, in this hands-on experience, will be Rome, the Eternal City, and nearby archaeological and historical sites where we will study art, culture, and the Roman institutions that have shaped European culture and the world. We will explore landmarks like the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Pantheon, and Roman catacombs. Finally, we will travel to the tombs of the ancient Etruscans in the picturesque medieval town of Tarquinia; the old Roman port of Ostia Antica; the ancient Monastery of Montecassino; and the famous ruins of Pompeii. Our program will spend two nights in Sorrento on the majestic Amalfi coast and conclude at the enchanting Renaissance Villa d’Este with its incredible waterworks. summerabroad.ucdavis.edu | SUMMER ABROAD 2017

ARTS AND VISUAL CULTURE

Art Studio in Paris and the French Riviera JUNE 26 – JULY 23, 2017 GINA WERFEL (gswerfel@ucdavis.edu), HEARNE PARDEE (whpardee@ucdavis.edu)

Art Studio 103B or 105A, 198* France—Paris, French Riviera In this program, we will explore Paris and the French countryside by drawing and painting on-site, in museums, and from live models. We begin the program in a beautiful chateau situated on a sandy beach overlooking the Mediterranean—a landscape that inspired the Impressionists. There will be field trips to Le Cannet, Nice, and Vence—focusing on the works of Matisse, Bonnard, and Picasso. We then move to Paris where we will have access to its rich store of painting, sculpture, and architecture, visiting museums such as the Louvre, Centre Pompidou, Musée Picasso, and Musée d’Orsay; drawing from works in the museums will be combined with work in the studio and around the city. Students will work on paper with drawing materials and acrylic paints. *Prerequisites enforced (see website).

Fashion Marketing in Paris JULY 1–29, 2017 NAN TURNER (neturner@ucdavis.edu)

Textiles & Clothing 173, 198 France—Paris Paris is the fashion capital of the world. Time spent in this glorious city is a defining experience for anyone interested in fashion and marketing. This four-week program will cover the principles of marketing, with a fashion orientation. Course assignments will often require experiencing and observing fashion and marketing by visiting boutiques, museums, and department stores and partaking in several favorite Parisian pastimes—outdoor cafes, people watching, shopping, and sightseeing. Day trips to the Château de Versailles, the Christian Dior Museum in Granville, and Lyon will provide an opportunity to further explore life and culture in France.

ARTS AND VISUAL CULTURE

World Cinema and the European Film Festival JULY 18 – AUGUST 15, 2017 JAIMEY FISHER (jrfisher@ucdavis.edu)

Film Studies 125, 198 or German 119, 198 Germany, Switzerland Based in Berlin, one of Europe’s most exciting cities, this program examines contemporary cinema by considering the role of film festivals in producing and distributing films globally. The key highlight is the Locarno Film Festival, an A-level festival in the lovely lake region of southern Switzerland/northern Italy (near Lake Como). Perched between Cannes (in spring) and Venice (in fall), Locarno’s is the most important festival of the summer. Beginning in Berlin, home to one of Europe’s most important studios, and then moving to Locarno, the class considers national filmmaking in relation to transnational festivals. Includes many contemporary directors with reputations established at festivals, including Almodovar (Talk to Her), Haneke (Hidden), Wong Kar Wai (Chungking Express), Maren Ade (Everybody Else), and von Trier (Dogville). After the festival we tour Milan, Italy.

Spanish Art JUNE 25 – JULY 22, 2017 CRISTINA MARTINEZ-CARAZO (cmmartinezcarazo@ucdavis.edu)

Spanish 143, 198 (Taught in English) Spain—Burgos, Madrid, Santander & more This program explores the relation among Spanish art, culture, and politics at different points in history and the way cultures determine artistic representations. The arrival in Spain of the Romans, Visigoths, Arabs, and French, among others, shaped the cultural and artistic legacies of the country and determined what Spain is today. Similarly, the works of Spanish master painters (Velazquez, El Greco, Goya, Picasso, and Dalí) clearly show the impact of politics on Spanish art. Cultural manifestations like flamenco and bullfighting could only be understood as a result of the multicultural background of the country. We will experience firsthand the interaction between art, culture, and politics by visiting some of the most emblematic cities of Spain—Madrid, Burgos, Salamanca, Bilbao and Santander—and exploring their museums, monuments, and traditions. summerabroad.ucdavis.edu | SUMMER ABROAD 2017

DOMESTIC PROGRAMS Domestic programs are just like our other programs—UC Davis courses taught in the field by UC Davis faculty— but the location is the US. The focus is on intercultural topics in an American setting, bringing home the point that intercultural skills are as relevant in the US as they are overseas. Programs may be of special interest to American students who wish to explore intercultural topics closer to home, and to international students who want to explore the US, while receiving credits that satisfy major, minor and GE requirements, and without the need to get a passport or visa. 14

Starting in the ancient English city of York, this program will travel to the vibrant creative capital London, and then to the Dutch cities of Utrecht and Amsterdam where design truly infiltrates everyday life. These cities represent a cultural and historical “design slice” through the heart of Northern Europe. Creative projects will focus on the design of multi-sensory experiences for cultural, commercial and public spaces, and the evolution of European design expression and the international style. Excursions include visiting famous design sites and professional design studios, and experiencing total design immersion at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London’s Design Museum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Rietveld Schröder House.

Community & Regional Development 153B, 198 or Landscape Architecture 191, 198

MORADEWUN ADEJUNMOBI (madejunmobi@ucdavis.edu)

Spain—Barcelona Look up from your tapas and watch the flow of people—neighbors, tourists, artists and peddlers—stroll down the Rambla. They disappear down the metro to resurface in some vibrant plaza or hillside neighborhood, climbing stairs to high-ceilinged apartments with views over this walkable metropolis. Barcelona, celebrated as a model for contemporary urbanism, architecture, and landscape, is also a city with strong community identities and a long history of activism. For four weeks we will explore the relationship between urbanism, design, and communities—examining Barcelona’s history, planning models, housing policies, and grass-roots activism. With the city as our classroom, learning happens through daily field trips, guest lectures, design projects, and conversations at sidewalk cafes, where we will learn, synthesize, and apply knowledge to actual public spaces of this Mediterranean city.

African American & African Studies 111, 198 Ghana—Accra

Ghana was the first country in Africa to achieve an end to colonial rule and a transition to a majority African government. It has also been a prominent theater for trying out solutions intended to end poverty and improve the quality of life of Africans. During our time together, we will examine how these solutions, usually described as ‘development,’ have been envisioned in a specific African country from the mid-20th to the early 21st century. You will be given the opportunity to review and evaluate the impact of varied institutions (government, nonprofits, international agencies) and activities (eco-tourism, mining, farming) in a country like Ghana. We will explore answers to major questions about development while also experiencing Ghana’s popular culture, markets, rainforests, and beaches. Many hands-on activities are planned, as well as visits to development projects and sites of historical or cultural significance in Accra, Kumasi, Cape Coast, Akosombo, and Mampong, among others.

The Politics of Global Inequality JULY 1–30, 2017 JEANNETTE MONEY (jnmoney@ucdavis.edu)

Political Science 124, 198 Switzerland—Geneva The long-standing division of the global system into richer and poorer regions poses many important problems in international political economy. This program presents a theoretical background to North-South issues and analyzes current problems in economic and political relations. After defining inequality, we will examine the sources of inequality emanating from the international system as well as from domestic political systems. We will also examine specific problems poor countries face, such as agricultural reform, population growth, levels of international trade and foreign direct investment. The program integrates these issues with an exploration of the role that intergovernmental agencies play in facilitating development. We will visit organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), which are headquartered in Geneva. summerabroad.ucdavis.edu | SUMMER ABROAD 2017
