A Four Day Guided Online Tour Through Latin America: Explore the Diversity
Become acquainted with the different sub-regions and cultures within Latin America.
Latin America is home to the lavish Amazon jungle and the majestic Andean mountains. It is the birth place of the once indomitable Incas, Mayas and Aztecs. Tales of grandeur, heart break, hope, tragedy and resilience abound. The region's past echoes through its rich landscape and its proud people.
In this course students will traverse a continent. You will learn just what is Latin America. Where is it? Who are the people? What makes each country unique and what binds them together? Geography, culture, history and politics all combine on our journey from Mexico to Argentina. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
It's time to embrace our differences and celebrate one another's uniqueness. As a lecturer of Latin American Studies for the last 8 years, I've had a front row view to witness students transform as they learn about and understand the wonders of a region many have only seen in the news. Understanding the culture, history and traditions that shape our neighbours help connect us and make us more sensitive and sympathetic to one another. I love exploring the multiculturalism of Latin America and treasure opportunities to share my knowledge with others and to learn from their experiences too. I hope my courses will help tear down stereotypes and help construct pathways for meaningful interactions across cultures.
