  The Position of Women in Post-Apartheid South Africa: An Assessment of Gains and Losses When: 4/29/2011 1:00:00 PM
Where: Student Center Room 205
A&S 100: South Africa & Kentucky

A&S 100-063: Kentucky & South Africa, Different Lands, Common Ground (2 credits, late start, MW 4:30-5:45, KAS 213). It starts Feb 21.

Join Dr. Lauren L. Kientz in exploring human rights issues, sports, music, race, and activism through several multi-media sources, including the film “Have You Heard from Johannesburg,” oral histories, music videos, commercials, and much more.

This is an unusual course: it will meet Feb 21-April 25, 2011 and it is a 2 credit course. Much of the discussion will occur online in small groups, so even though the course is open to 200 students, you will get to know other students and work with them closely. 

Throughout the course, we will have many special visitors from Kentucky and South Africa who will discuss firsthand and scholarly knowledge about the global anti-apartheid movement.

We meet MW 4:30-5:45 in KAS 213.

In order to enroll, contact your advisor and request to be added to the course. You can enroll until Feb 21.

In the final week, there will take a field trip to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, as a culminating learning experience in the similarities and differences between South Africa and Kentucky.
