Warsaw, Krakow, Berlin: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives Collide

Title

Warsaw, Krakow, Berlin: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives Collide

Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 127
Phoebe and Maureen traveled to Warsaw, Krakow, and Berlin in May 2015 through Morris-August Honors Program, which seeks to create global citizens through intensive interdisciplinary immersions in cultural experiences outside the United States. Prior to their travel, Maureen and Phoebe studied the three cities to gain a deep historical context of the locations from 1933 through the 1950s. Though this knowledge proved useful to understand these cities and the historic sites they visited, they realized it gave them little experience in navigating these cities in the modern context. In this panel, Maureen and Phoebe seek to present their reflection on how that context both added to and subtracted from their understanding while traveling. Maureen and Phoebe will also explore their roles as global citizens; which necessitates study of both historical and contemporary contexts for cities and countries throughout the globe. The panel format will best suit this endeavor.
