Study abroad in London info session
Professor Palomares regularly teaches a summer abroad program in London that focuses on gender and communication. On Friday, November 6, he will be holding an information session for the summer abroad program in London in Study Abroad office on corner of 3rd and A Sts., from noon to 1pm. Feel free to join and find out more about this opportunity.
Gender and communication thrive at a dynamic crossroads. The program introduces students to the relationship between gender and communication in a locale—London—with a deep history and culture that is intellectually and experientially stimulating. Students will learn concepts related to gender and communication, immerse themselves in their surroundings by having experiences directly related to class material, and compare and contrast the U.S. and U.K. Example topics include gender roles in society; language differences; stereotypes; friendships and romantic relationships; leadership; glass ceiling; texting, Facebook, and computer-mediated communication; and gendered representations in the media. Students will visit the British Museum, National Gallery, Hampton Court, and Science Museum (most with tailored tours) and see how gender is portrayed in a movie and a play.
