HECUA Twin Cities: Writing for Social Change: The Personal, the Political, and the Power of the Written Word

Writing for Social Change is based on the longstanding tradition in Western culture of using literature as a tool for social critique, as a means of calling for social change and justice, and as a tool for social transformation. The program combines traditional methods of literary and cultural analysis with creative writing workshops in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, and makes use of HECUA’s approach to interdisciplinary, reflective critique. The program explores the ways creative writers and literature impact communities, and examines the role creative writers and literature play in addressing pressing social issues. Writing for Social Change combines critical, analytical seminars, creative writing workshops, field study, and a professional internship with a Twin Cities nonprofit, literary arts organization, or K-12 school in need of reading/writing tutors, to give students an integrated, experiential learning opportunity.

International Human Rights Exchange

The International Human Rights Exchange (IHRE) is the world’s only full-semester, multidisciplinary program in human rights. Each semester, undergraduate students and faculty from Southern Africa, North America, and other regions of the world come together to participate in a deep and multi-faceted intellectual engagement with human rights. The IHRE program is housed at the University of the Witwatersrand (also known as Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa and is a joint venture with Bard College. IHRE inspires and activates students by advancing their knowledge and experience of human rights. Program activities include: Rigorous and thought-provoking classes taught in a seminar style, including a core course on the international human rights framework and a practicum on human rights advocacy; A multidisciplinary selection of elective courses, connecting human rights concerns to: development, gender, and culture; literature, media, and theatre; philosophy, politics and social work; *A hands-on, mentored internship with a leading NGO working on the frontlines of social change; Guest lectures offered by leading luminaries in the human rights field; * An exploration of human rights challenges off-campus through human rights workshops, visits to key sites such as Soweto and the Apartheid Museum, and other cultural activities; and Membership in a diverse and global community of students and scholars committed to human rights. IHRE believes that the subject of human rights provides an excellent framework for realizing the goal of liberal education. The program aims to provide a challenging and rewarding experience by: enabling critical and creative thinking about human rights: developing a democratic understanding of people’s role in society; linking academic work with activism, advocacy, and building a culture of human rights; implementing student-centered learning; and establishing relationships of equality, mutuality, and exchange among participants. We seek to promote a critical understanding of human rights as part of a broad intellectual and social movement, not simply as a code or set of laws. We believe that human rights is a discourse in transformation (and often in contest) that is best understood through a multidisciplinary approach extending to the humanities, social sciences, arts, and sciences.

SIT Cameroon: Social Pluralism and Development

Examine social, economic, and political development patterns in one of West Africa's most ethnically and geographically diverse countries. Cameroon is home to more than 200 ethnic groups and even more languages and dialects, and finding common ground for its national agendas poses an ongoing challenge. Famous for its folklore, art, and diverse environments, Cameroon is striving to preserve its cultural heritage and diversity in the face of globalization and pressing socioeconomic needs. Students have access to cultural activities, academic resources, and many of the international development organizations headquartered in the city. A two-week stay in the northern town of Ngaoundéré and excursions to western and coastal Cameroon give insight into how social change is manifested in different regions.

Swedish Program in Stockholm

The Swedish Program is sponsored by Stockholm University and by a consortium of American colleges and universities. The campus is located just ten minutes to the heart of the city by subway. It is quite easy for students to benefit from the rich cultural life the city has to offer as well as other forms of entertainment. Stockholm University is a major teaching/research university and home to 34,000 undergraduate and graduate students. However, the campus has a much smaller “feel” to it. The university is situated in the middle of the first national, city park in the world. Pine forests and the Baltic Sea surround the campus. The buildings are both modern and historic with distinctive contemporary art and sculpture scattered around campus.
