Summer Faculty-Led Programs
Barnard College is pleased to offer three faculty-led programs for academic credit in summer 2019:
Translating Theatre Workshop, Paris, France, 1 - June 27, 2019: Barnard’s prestigious Center for Translation Studies is returning to Paris for its second year! In this four-week program, students will immerse themselves in French culture by attending theater performances and navigating daily life as a Parisian, all while working collaboratively on translating five French plays into English with a foremost practitioner. Classes will be held in Columbia University’s historic Reid Hall and students have the option of living with a French family or in an apartment in the city.
Field Methods in Archaeology and Oral History, June 3 - July 8, 2019: Field Methods in Archaeology and Oral History is an intensive 5-week course organized around a unique set of collaborations between scholars, students, and the Indigenous and Hispano communities of the Rio Embudo Watershed in northern New Mexico. Participants in the course gain formal training in archaeological field methods (pedestrian survey, site mapping, in-field artifact analysis, excavation, remote sensing, artifact and sample processing) as well as in the methods of oral history (structured and unstructured interviews, object-oriented interviews, memory mapping and ethnogeography), while helping build new understandings of the complex Indo-Hispano history of the region. In the process, participants work closely with local stakeholders and are guided in the development of interdisciplinary research projects that integrate the sciences and humanities and that are accountable to descendant communities. The field program is based in the midst of the beautiful and historic community of Dixon in northern New Mexico, just one mile from the Rio Grande with a view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
The Vienna Experience: Culture, History, Language, June 2 - June 27, 2019: In this intensive four-week study abroad language and culture course students on the Intermediate I and Intermediate II levels will practice and expand their German-language skills by exploring Austrian culture, history and politics in one of Europe’s most diverse cities. Students will experience language and culture first-hand by getting to know different “sites of memory” that have defined Vienna and engage in research and field projects.
