The deadline to apply for UF in Trinidad and Tobago, a new and unique study abroad opportunity during Summer B, is little more than a week away—March 15.
UF in Trinidad and Tobago is designed to immerse students in the history and cultures of Trinidad and the broader Caribbean through oral history fieldwork and digital humanities production. Major themes of the course are religion, Trinidadian literature, anti-slavery and anti-colonial movements, oral history, historical memory, and public history. Excursions include Nelson Island, the island of Tobago, key heritage and eco-tourist sites, beaches, and more.
Dr. Ortiz, the lead faculty instructor and director of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, is very excited to bring students to Trinidad and Tobago for a fun, immersive, and hands-on learning experience.
Students will earn six history credits at the 4,000-level through the program. Visit the link below to apply. Please send any application or program questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
