For a more than human humanism

Exploring the Dolomites: Landscape, History, and Ecology in Northern Italy Field seminar

I look forward to leading a group of UO students in the exploration of the astonishing natural history and geological wonders of the Dolomites and the traces of human history in these sublime mountains. During the 2-week journey, we will experience the best of the Dolomites, practice conscious excursions, and an experiential environmental and historical education. Hiking from hut to hut and through tunnels created during WWI, we will learn to read the magnificent natural environment as a unique and open textbook. It will be a transformative voyage of discovery where the individual “self” learns to relate to the pervasive and embracing dimensions of deep time and space written in the landscape. For more information, see the GLOBAL EDUCATION OREGON website.
