URBDP 498C/598C or L ARCH 495A, Undergraduate & Graduate Students

Professor Fritz Wagner, fwagner, 206-351-6749

Poster, Program Description and Itinerary attached.

Comparative Urban Studies–US and Quebec/Canada: A Study Abroad Course

Instructors: Fritz Wagner and Regent Cabana

Credits: 3-6

Maximum Number of students: 15

When: Summer A Term, Larch 495A and URBDP 498C/598C

Audience: Students in the UW College of Built Environments (CBE), Canadian Studies, other departments in the university and departments at UW Tacoma and UW Bothell.

Course Description: Comparative research in urban studies has been a major development in the last decade but little has been done to provide US students with a comprehensive knowledge of Québec cities and how they compare with US cities.

The aim of the course is to introduce students to theoretical and methodological aspects of comparative urban research by providing on-site case studies of Québec cities.

The estimated cost of the trip for each student, including airfare, meals, lodging and ground transportation is $1,500. The course is open to Juniors and Seniors, as well as Graduate students, for three to six hours credits.

We will visit three Quebec cities – Montréal, Québec City and Ottawa, where a number of professors, government officials and other urban experts will give lectures and tours. The course will examine similarities and differences between U.S. and Québec cities. We will look more particularly at current urban issues confronting communities in Québec. We will study the physical layout of cities, urban design and urban growth, problems related to the environment, governmental institutions, as well as historical, social and cultural factors specific to Quebec cities.

Students will write a paper on a topic related to urban issues encountered in Québec. The course introduces the logic of comparative research in the social sciences and applies its theory and methodology to the study of Québec cities, as compared to US cities. Its multidisciplinary and comparative character develops the ability to interpret and understand urban changes, changing demographics and to analyze appropriate and sustainable strategies and policies to address urban problems in Québec and the US. Students will gain a better understanding of economic, political, social, and cultural differences between Québec and the US. The course will also help them better understand the diversity of the contemporary urban world in Québec and the US and the importance of the social-cultural factors specific to each region and city, in finding solutions to common urban problems. By the end of the course, students are expected to be conversant in cross-border urban issues in Québec and the US.

Requirements: Students are expected to keep a daily journal on the things they have seen and learned. In addition, a term paper is required that focuses on some aspect of comparison with a subject with the United States. The 6 credit term paper would be a longer version of the 3 credit paper. The topic should be discussed with the instructors.

Applied Sustainability Entrepreneurship Summer in Brazil

My name is Sophia Watkins and I founded Forest Fund. We will be running a summer course in applied sustainability entrepreneurship, bringing students to the deforestation forefront to understand the economics of destruction firsthand. They will learn about sustainability problems and analyze the local and international markets that have generated them (lots of externalities!). By the end of the six weeks they will have formed small teams, picked a sustainability problem, and written and pitched a business plan for a startup to address the problem.

Attached is the flyer for the summer course and here is a link to an interview by The Office of Sustainability at Harvard (https://green.harvard.edu/news/understanding-economics-deforestation-amazon).

For students that are still interested, we are able to arrange transportation to fit their schedule

deadline to apply for early fall start London Study abroad, 2019 –has been extended to 3/18

March 18th is the revised deadline for applying for the Early Fall in London program.

See the attached flyer for A little bit about the program.

“Great Britain, like many of its European neighbors, has had its fair share of crisis and change. Reading about it is one thing. Visiting the sites where the change took place is an invaluable addition to understanding the past and, in part, the present. We’ll begin with Shakespeare’s age and end with Brexit. Each week there will be a classroom discussion of assigned reading followed by several

site visits and supplementary activities designed to complement readings by bringing them to life. The goal of the program is to help students become more informed about the great crises in London’s culture and their effect in shaping modern London.”

Study Abroad in Eurasia – Environment and Sustainability

SRAS is pleased to highlight two unique programs we are very excited to be offering in Eurasia this summer. We hope that you will share this information with your colleagues and students.

Georgian Footways: Human Geography of the Caucasus

In the northwest corner of Georgia lies the fascinating region of Svaneti, where the surrounding mountains have helped to protect and preserve the region’s distinct language and culture over the centuries.

Under the Soviet Union, Svaneti faced many environmental, economic, and demographic pressures that had lasting effects, as did the chaos of the post-Soviet period. More recently, Svaneti has been the focus of government efforts to develop tourism and large-scale hydropower projects.

This course examines questions surrounding economic development, the current environmental and social issues facing the region, and efforts to preserve Svaneti’s unique natural and cultural heritage.

You will spend half the course working with the Transcaucasian Trail project, an effort to build trail infrastructure that benefits local communities and trail users through the development of sustainable tourism. While with the project, you will live and work in the mountains, designing and building the trail and engaging with local communities, learning first-hand what it takes to implement a sustainable development project and gaining insight into the practical implications the project has for the people who live along the trail.

The Caucasus mountains are a spectacular setting and our living laboratory as we use the lenses of political ecology, human geography, and critical development studies to engage with some of the most pressing issues facing our planet.

Program Dates: June 30 – July 14, 2019
Credits: 2 (4 with internship extension)
Application Deadline: April 15, 2019
Cost: $3,195 (no credit) / $3,695 (credit)
Includes: Tuition, accommodation with at least 2 meals/day, insurance, transportation within Georgia, transcript (Stetson University)

More information: http:www.sras.org/Foodways

2-WEEK EXTENSION! Internship

This NGO internship is hosted at Tbilisi’s Impact Hub where you can engage in mapping/GIS related projects, collection of interviews with the people in Svaneti, multimedia/website content production, and sustainable economic environment/tourism.

More information: https://www.sras.org/Footways

***

  • Learn “survival Russian” or professional language (more advanced students of Russian).

This program is conducted in English and does not require prior knowledge of Russian. It is eligible for six US semester credits total. Students may extend their time in Irkutsk with additional weeks of Russian language study.

Program Dates: May 31 – July 17, 2019
Application Deadline: March 15, 2019

Study Abroad Opportunity for Students at University of Washington

Study Abroad Opportunity for Students at University of Washington

Insight Global Education is a Canadian based education organization that delivers the Semester in Development program, a globally-accredited study and internship abroad experience available to undergraduate students.

They are currently accepting applications for upcoming terms. In partnership with universities and community-based organizations, the Semester in Development gives current students the opportunity to both study and intern at the same time, while gaining invaluable experience living in a developing country.

The Semester in Development program runs during all three terms (winter/spring, summer and fall) and has been steadily growing since its inception in 2013. As a mission-driven organization, we believe that, by engaging with global issues first-hand, students will be better equipped to create sustainable and meaningful change. We are not advocates nor supporters of volunteer tourism; rather our programs are rooted in an ethical model of local engagement.

The Semester in Development, in partnership with Makerere University and Fiji National University, currently runs in Uganda and Fiji, and will begin later in 2019 in Thailand as well. Qualifying students from University of Washington could be eligible to participate. All students who have successfully completed the program have received transfer credits at their home institution.

Further details on the program can be found here.
