Four Approaches to Internationalizing Curricula: Artistic Engagement, Paired Study, Site Specificity, and Residency Programs

This panel offers multiple strategies, through varied disciplines, for expanding international education on campuses. Helen Myers (Dance) will discuss the value of “bringing the world to campus” with invited global artists and scholars. Carmen S. Rivera (World Languages) will present a strategy that prepares students for study abroad using preliminary “mini courses.” Jeanette McVicker (English) will explain how she “mapped” London to highlight critical locations that would serve as the backdrop for exploring literary and national identity. Paul Murphy (Music) will offer a model for international education centered on direct, extended engagement with persons from less-developed locations.
