DIPL 2118 / 6258
Through a study abroad trip in the Basque Country, this course examines how different actors and institutions address processes of dealing with the contentious past and how the politics of collective remembering impacts the dynamics of relationships among people on the ground. We will also examine various social practices and initiatives of counteracting the negative effects of divisive past through education, justice, policymaking, art and commemoration. We will visit different cities of the Basque Country, Spain such as Bilbao, San Sebastian, Vitoria and Guernica. This course will be an opportunity to apply various international relations theories and concepts, network with representatives of local and international organizations, engage with people on the ground and immerse in the rich culture of the region.
