AGROECOLOGY IN COSTA RICA

www.uga.edu/tropag

Professor Wayne Parrott, [log in to unmask], 111 Riverbend
Road, 542-0928

A Study Abroad Program with a Biological Beat: The way
ecology, agriculture and people interact to define the
challenges of achieving sustainability

Travel to Costa Rica, and enjoy spectacular landscapes.
Visit its amazing ecosystems. Study the crops that grow in
environments that range from sea level to soaring volcanic
peaks, and accommodate everything from hi-tech agriculture
to traditional home gardens near a cloud forest.

Costa Rica boasts one of the highest levels of biodiversity
in the world. Agricultural production is taking place
adjacent to wilderness areas, and gradually encroaching upon
these. Wilderness areas are further affected by a large
influx of tourists. Within this context, sustainability and
sustainable development serves as the course theme.

You will travel from Atlantic to Pacific, exploring all of
the major ecosystems and major agricultural areas of Costa
Rica. Through a combination of site visits, hands-on
activities, hikes, and research projects, you will develop
your own sense of sustainability from first-hand experiences
and contact with Costa Rican citizens.

GEOGRAPHY AND ETHNOECOLOGY OF LATIN AMERICA
Maymester; deadline is March 27.

The course Geography and Ethnoecology of Latin America will
visit Ecuador and tour several cities, ethnobotanical
reserves, medicinal gardens, ecological reserves and
national parks, where students will learn about the
geographies of Latin America and the traditional ecological
knowledge for biodiversity conservation. Direct interaction
with local scholars, guest speakers and indigenous leaders
will give UGA students unique chance to learn from the field.

This is a 6 credit-hour Maymester Study Abroad opportunity
open to all majors and minors. For more information, please
visit www.ggy.uga.edu/studyabroad, or contact the Faculty
Director: Dr. Fausto Sarmiento Assistant Professor

“REACTING TO THE PAST” IN ATHENS GREECE

There is still room for you!  The deadline is March 31. This
program is open to all students (not just honors)

The Classics Department and the Honors Program at the
University of Georgia are sponsoring a “Reacting Abroad”
program in Athens, Greek this Maymester (May 21 - June 10
2006)—three unforgettable weeks reinventing democracy in its
famous birthplace.  “Prepare to take a real walk from the
Peiraeus to the site of the first Ekklesia at the Pnyx,” the
Gamemaster (in the guise of Athena) will tell the 18
students who embark on this pedagogical adventure.  We will
be in the city where all the events we are enacting really
took place 1400 years ago!

“Reacting to the Past”—an integrative and active approach to
learning—is an award-winning pedagogy that provides a deeply
historicized approach to important texts in the humanities
and to critical moments in world history.  In Reacting
classes, students are encouraged to make the imaginative
leap to understand what the texts meant to those who read
them at charged moments in the past.  The students achieve
this through sustained role-playing.  They work in factions
or as individuals and have specified goals which they pursue
through active research and debate with one another and the
writing of papers.   “The Threshold of Democracy, Athens 403
BCE”—one of the most popular Reacting Games—begins at the
moment when the Thirty Tyrants have been expelled from
Athens.  Students deliberate, in character, on the issues of
the day, determining the future of Athens and recreating the
intellectual dynamic of one of the most formative periods in
history.

The UGA faculty teaching Reacting Abroad are Dr. Nancy
Felson and Dr. Keith Dix.  Dr. Naomi Norman will guide some
of the site visits in Athens and its countryside.  In a
second course, Ancient Athens, students will explore the
physical settings in which Athenian democracy developed and
flourished, especially the Agora, Pnyx, and Acropolis, and
will examine the archaeological, literary, and historical
evidence used to reconstruct Athenian life and
institutions.  The Reacting course satisfies Area F in
numerous departments; the Ancient Athens course has no
prerequisites and will dovetail with the Reacting course.

UGA GEOLOGY IN ARGENTINA

There are spots still left in the UGA Geology in Argentina
Program. If you have not been able to submit your
application yet, please note that the deadline for this
program has been extended.

Participating students will enjoy the breathtaking
landscapes and rich culture of Argentina while completing 6
to 10 credits of core or elective science courses this
summer.  Covering more than 4000 miles of Argentinean
territory from the Pampas Plains to the Andes Mountains,
this Field Geology program visits cosmopolitan Buenos Aires,
three National Parks and twelve other cities in Argentina's
western interior.

Ideal for students in any discipline who love the outdoors
and are eager to explore interesting, rarely visited places.
