The campaign for Hartwick students

Changes and Challenges of South Africa

Location: Cities and countryside of South Africa

Course: ANTH 355

The richest country on its continent, South Africa was long ruled by a brutal white dictatorship that repeatedly committed crimes against humanity upon its black inhabitants. Starting at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, students travel from Kruger Park to the Indian Ocean to learn of the changes and challenges since Apartheid, with lectures by local experts, students and citizens. The class visits game reserves, famous archaeological and paleontological sites, rural native villages and glittering malls, museums, schools, orphanages, squatter camps, beaches, and mountains in a quest to understand the nation's continuing transition to a multiracial, multicultural democracy.

Instructors: Professor of Anthropology Connie Anderson and Craig Bielert
Length of program: 26 days

I am continually impressed and often touched by the quality of what takes place on Oyaron Hill. The practicality and the dedication that Hartwick College demonstrates in so many ways both enhances the lives of young people and benefits our society.
