Decentering the Academy in International Service-Learning: Toward Community-Community Engagement

In recent years, there has arisen a rich literature of ethical inquiries about service-learning as practiced in international contexts. A relatively underexplored area has been the practice of transnational service-learning: programs in which students engage in comparative service-learning with domestic and international community partners within the same program. In this panel, three representatives from the University of Michigan will present an experimental approach to transnational service-learning, co-located in Detroit, Michigan and Ishinomaki, Japan.
