Program Overview

South Africa is a global brand. The struggle against white minority rule, culminating in democratic elections in 1994, created a number of iconic images for the country and people. The anti-apartheid struggle, Nelson Mandela, and the non-violent transition were all celebrated and branded in the academic and popular media.

Lurking in the shadows of the brand are the continuing efforts throughout the country to define and manage individual and community transitions to a better life. The 2017 Intensive Course Abroad to South Africa proposes to examine the challenges faced by civil society in creating a better life for all. We will travel to three regions of the country – the Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, and Western Cape provinces. In each, we will meet with a number of community organizations in an attempt to better understand the challenges, prospects, and successes of their work. Students will participate in the work of the organizations – both as observers and contributors.
