Study Abroad w/ CHID in the Philippines

Made in the USA: Knowledge Construction and Social Action
Study Abroad in the Philippines and Hawai’i
Autumn 2012

Students from all areas of study are encouraged to apply to the Comparative History of Ideas fall program in the Philippines and Hawai’i. This program will explore the ways that knowledge production in the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora is and has been shaped by colonialism. This will require students to consider both contemporary educational, social and political organizations, but also to reflect on American identities and the idea of “American Exceptionalism”. The program will begin with a week in Hawai’i – a common stopover for flights to the Philippines, and also a historic waypoint for Filipino migration to the United States. Next, students will travel to Manila, where they will reside at University of the Philippines dormitories and learn from local academics and community organizations.

Federal Financial Aid can be applied to the program fee. All classes will be taught in English. Earns full-time UW credit.
