A&S 100-049 South Africa & Kentucky: Different Lands, Common Ground

Join us in exploring human rights issues, sports, music, race, and activism through several multi-media sources, including the film “Have You Heard from Johannesburg,” oral histories, music videos, commercials, and much more.

This is an unusual course: we will meet Sept 23-Dec 7, 2010 and it is a 2 credit course, making it a good pairing with UK101. Much of the discussion will occur online in small groups, so even though the course is open to 200 students, you will get to know other students and work with them closely. 

For seven weeks, our course will alternate between discussion on Tuesdays and the film on Thursdays. You will have two options for the film time—either 3:30pm or 7pm. In our final week, we will take a field trip to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, as a culminating learning experience in the similarities and differences between South Africa and Kentucky.

For more information, contact Dr. Lauren L. Kientz, Lauren.Kientz@uky.edu
