Apply for Professor Blocher’s Spring Seminar

This seminar will study comparative legal, political, and cultural issues relating to freedom of speech, the press, and other media in Ghana. In addition to a weekly class session, students in the seminar will spend their spring break (March 9-17, 2013) in Ghana assessing the legal and cultural issues in context, meeting with various interested groups and individuals, and deepening their understanding through hands-on experience outside of the classroom. Students will also be responsible for preparing a substantial collaborative written product by the end of the semester. Because of the collaborative nature of the writing, the seminar will not fulfill the upper-level writing requirement. The seminar will be graded on a regular basis, rather than credit/no credit. Grades will be based on class participation, extent of preparation for the trip, individual presentations, and contributions to the joint written product.
