Guiding Site Visits Abroad: Strategies for Exploring Power and Privilege and Increasing Cultural Competency

The emerging trend to internationalize the curriculum and produce “global citizens” has placed great emphasis on developing our students’ intercultural competence. In the field of study abroad, this often means shifting perspectives between U.S. and host country “national” cultural frameworks. Join us as we explore ways to help students reflect on their cultural communities and power and privilege vis a vis their host communities by applying techniques of ethnography and cultural studies.
