In view of the abrupt disruption of CASA study abroad programs last semester and suspension of Study Abroad programs this fall, CASA is pleased to offer a new Independent Study course on the global pandemic, specifically tailored to CASA students. What ties all the CASA host countries together is their common experience battling Covid-19, providing students and scholars with an unprecedented opportunity to explore the social, cultural, economic, political and public health impacts of the current pandemic.
Taught by Brown University History professors Daniel Rodriguez and Evelyn Hu-Dehart, this semester-length online course meets twice weekly, first as a full group (Weeks 1-4) and then as site-level subgroups (Weeks 5-9). At the end of the semester, students will complete their research and present their findings to the full class (Weeks 10-12).
Brown University students will receive Independent Study credit from the History department. Students at other universities are encouraged to identify a faculty member at their home institution who could approve Independent Study for the course; you may wish to contact CASA or your institution's study abroad office if you need guidance seeking credit for this course. Students may also choose to participate in the course for enrichment purposes only, provided they can commit to the full semester.
