Environment & Nature on Inca and Modern culture in Peru
FSC 2998
(1 credit hour)
May 11 - 21, 2015
Herrick

How do the natural environment, landforms, and climate influence the rise and fall of societies both ancient and modern? Peru provides a case study in an ancient Inca culture that rose to prominence due to its exploitation of natural resources. The Inca culture fell due to conquest by a Spanish culture seeking the wealth of Peru’s natural heritage. The modern culture of Peru is a synthesis of old and new, faced with the task of moving forward by conscientiously managing its rich natural resources without over exploiting them. The future of Peru parallels the future of human society everywhere; our ability to live harmoniously with nature will dictate whether we thrive or suffer as another failed society. Discover your inner Indiana Jones—and an affinity for easy-going Peruvian life—as you adventure through the legendary world of the Incas.

Germany

May Trip

The "Racial State"
POS 3997
(2 credit hours)
May 4 - May 20, 2015
Anderson

This course is designed to familiarize students with sites important the history of Nazi Germany during World War two. This trip covers two disparate elements and two separate and quite different sites: the Ravensbrueck KZ, near Furstenberg (Havel), Brandenburg, the only concentration camp specifically designed and housing women; and Quedlinburg, Saxony-Anhalt, which was to be the focus site of the new Nazi “religion”. The first aim is to familiarize students with the system of camps, their hierarchy and administration, and their use. We will stay “within the wire” at Ravenbrueck KZ, in the old SS accommodations for the matrons (which numbered among them Ilse Koch). Here, we will examine the camp in its three stages: as a detention camp and prison for women “social deviants”, political criminals, and religious offenders (chiefly Jehovah’s Witnesses); through its transition period of labor camp and industrial center, and through its final stages as a death camp. This section of the course will be team-taught by Dr. Anderson and Dr. Matthias Heyl, head of education at Ravensbrueck KZ.The second aim of the trip is to work through issues of displacement: Quedlinburg was a monastery and convent, founded by Henry the Fowler in about 900 AD. It was converted to Lutheranism in the 1500s, and sank into obscurity until rediscovered by Heinrich Himmler, who fancied himself a reincarnation of Henry. Himmler’s interest in the place was focused on making it a center for the new Nazi “religion”, a mish-mash of the occult, old “Nordic” myths, and nonsense of his own invention. Perhaps not incidentally, the ruins of the Langenstein-Zwieberge KZ are nearby: the dead from this camp were cremated at Quedlinburg’s city crematoria. Quedlinburg remains one of the most important extant medieval/renaissance towns in central Europe, preserved as it was during the war (not a bomb dropped there) and then as part of the old DDR, it was never touched by modern rebuilding. Restoration has taken place in the years since unification and the city’s signal honor of being marked a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Alps – Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn
FSC2998
(1 credit hour)
June 27 - July 10, 2015

Must have permission of instructor to enroll on trip. The Haute Route is one of the world’s great classic hikes. Sometimes called Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn because of its start at the base of Mont Blanc in Chamonix, France and its conclusion in Zermatt, Switzerland at the foot of the Matterhorn, the route covers approximately 100 miles amid the most beautiful views in Europe. Students will join Dr. Mathias, who lived in Switzerland for three years and has hiked extensively in this area, for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. To fit the trip into two weeks, we will join the route in Champex, Switzerland and hike to Zermatt over nine days, traversing several alpine valleys and numerous mountain passes along the way. Though we will not go above 3000m elevation, we will be surrounded by 4000m peaks and walk along glacial lakes; we will encounter cows in high mountain pastures and bouqetins (ibex) in their natural habitat; and we will hike in the shadows of some of the most storied mountains in the Alps. The terrain is varied but the views are uniformly stunning. Accommodations are simple, including hotels in small mountain villages and mountain cabins operated by the Swiss Alpine Club. The route is not dangerous but it is strenuous – students must have a high level of physical fitness. In addition to the hike, students will have a day to explore Zermatt and an afternoon along Lake Geneva.
