Interested in studying or researching abroad this summer? Check out the Social and Environmental Justice in Oaxaca program. In addition to seminars, guest lectures, and field visits in the city of Oaxaca, participants visit a number of communities throughout the state, engaging with critical issues including: “green” energy, alternative education, extractivism, migration, resistance, eco-techniques, comparative politics, territoriality, community based technology and communication, and more.

The program is a great choice for Environmental Studies, International Studies, Anthropology, Political Science, Spanish, and Geography majors and minors, or anyone seeking to gain Spanish language skills, research experience, or elective credits. If you are interested in learning more about the program, stop by the Orientation to Oaxaca at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, October 24 in Patterson Office Tower 843 or contact the faculty director Oliver Froehling at orfroe01@uky.edu.
