GLST 251: Cultural Perspectives
From Chicago to Amish Country (3 credits, local)
This course is based in Goshen, but includes several days in Chicago and day trips to locations from South Bend to Shipshewana. Encounter various religious and ethnic groups, their histories and the global immigration stories that shape this region beyond just today’s politics. You may learn new things about your own borders and crossings as well.
GLST 271: Community Engaged Learning
Latino and Other Ethnic Community Histories (3 credits, local)
We will study oral and public history methodologies and practice the important skills of interviewing as we help our local Goshen Historical Society collect the stories of the Latino community and other groups. To gain practice and perspective, students will first study relevant literature and reflect on insider-outsider positions.
This course is offered every spring semester. It is taught by Julia Schiavone Camacho. It is not represented in the program overview below because it does not require travel or additional fees.
