Program Description

Pathways to Peace: Pilgrimage, Sacred Spaces, and Gandhi's Message of Nonviolent Resistance in India's Road to Independence

Join us in July 2013 – a year that marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights movement in Birmingham – as we embark on “Pathways to Peace: Pilgrimage, Sacred Spaces, and Gandhi’s Message of Nonviolent Resistance in India’s Road to Independence.” This Study Away program immerses students in actual sites that reflect the complex and rich terrain of ancient and contemporary India – from monuments to temples to geographies that symbolize pivotal moments (both historical and mythological) to modern-day spaces in which those lacking basic civil rights in India (women, children, the disabled) are laying claim to their rightful place in Indian society. Students will spend 24 days in India visiting Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Delhi.

Any student interested in the study of Peace is familiar with Gandhi and some of the nonviolent ideologies that come from India. However, few people can understand what remarkable achievements Gandhi and these peace movements have made without visiting India and gaining a better understanding of this rich and diverse culture. Understanding the cultural context of the emergence of these peaceful ideologies is a critical element of this experiential learning trip. This hands-on study away learning program, positioned in a setting such as India provides a unique experience for students can learn about peace, social justice, Indian culture and heritage.

2013 FACULTY LEADERS:
