Eleven King’s College students are currently participating in a faculty-led study abroad experience to Eastern Europe as part of the King’s College Geographies Series. The trip includes excursions to the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia.
Student participants are Rosemaureen Bulger, Jamie Costello, Alysha Emelett, Kamila Hacia, John Hudicka, Rachel Jonas, Carisa Panzetta, John Poma, Tiffani Prescott, Lauren Sucheki, and Stephanie Widdoes.
As part of the program, titled “Identity and Place in Slavic Cultures,” students will travel to numerous cultural sites, including the Auschwitz concentration camp located outside Krakow, the Devin Castle on the Danube in Slovakia, and the Jewish Quarter in Prague.
This program is designed for students to develop a growing awareness of the complex identities of the people of Eastern Europe, including their religious, ethnic, linguistic, and social understandings through a historical exploration.
King’s faculty members Dr. Beth Admiraal, political science, and Renata Evans, foreign languages, are program directors. Megan Borsuk, coordinator of short-term faculty led programs abroad, assisted in developing the program.
King’s College is a Catholic College sponsored by the Congregation of the Holy Cross.
