Literacies & Gender in Botswana

Location: Gaborone, Botswana; Maun, Botswana

Program Type: Faculty/Teacher Led

Semester: Summer

This program will introduce students to complex questions, topics, and challenges related to writing and research within the context of Botswana and our shared developing global village.

Students will study the history, culture, society, education, politics, and languages of Botswana with a focus on how these topics are impacted by intersectional identities including race, religion, gender, sexuality, and disability. They will work with and learn from students and faculty from MSU, Botswana Open University (BOU), and the University of Botswana (UB). Ultimately MSU students will collaborate with Botswana faculty to facilitate and assess a multi-day writing retreat for faculty and staff from both institutions.
