CULTURE&LITERATURE

Greece United Kingdom

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. Traveling the same lands with the American and Greek writers (in translation) we will be reading, students will write about the complex identity of a country suspended between a rich past and a complex present in a land where the gods still speak.

Climate Resilience in Thailand (NEW)

This program focuses on the evolution of water management for megacities such as Mexico City from pre-Aztec times to the present. Mexico City’s center was once Tenochtitlan, a city built in the middle of a lake with a sophisticated water system that supplied water to more than half a million people in the 1500s. Using Mexico City as a case study, we will examine aqueducts, sewer systems, and water treatment plants as well as “green” infrastructure, to understand how water is distributed to large metropolitan areas. Program highlights will include the National Anthropology Museum where students will meet “Tlaloc,” the god of rain, a 30-feet sculpture and an iconic figure of the Aztecs, and Diego Rivera’s mural at the outlet of the Mexico City aqueduct.

During your time in Bangkok, you will explore the ways that conceptualizations of water in Thai culture has informed policy, planning, and design of the city and the implications of that decision-making on future climate resilience. We will examine vernacular building techniques that enabled the Thai people to adapt to living in an active tidal estuary, as well as more recent Westernized strategies of water management (and their impacts) within the city. Kayaking through ‘klongs,’ urban agricultural tours and a community-wide water fight will be all part of the experience.
