Immersion Rwanda: 2011     

Students will be required to take my course currently under development, Political Science 397: Rwanda in Comparative African Perspective, during the fall of 2010 to prepare for this experience.

Course themes will include Rwandan history, the colonial experience, the 1994 genocide, post-conflict reconciliation, development, and transnational issues impacting the wider region. 

Ted Steiner at the Center for Service and Social Action, Dr. Tamba Nlandu, JCU student Paulin Byusa, and I are currently hard at work establishing partnerships with organizations in Rwanda to create a dynamic, educational, and profound social-justice immersion journey to this country in January, 2011. 

More coming soon!
