1. Climate and Culture Change in the Andes: Winter Session
The Center for Social Well Being is now approaching its 11th year offering our 3 week training program in interdisciplinary qualitative field methods, as well as Spanish and Quechua language classes, in the Peruvian Andes. The combined undergraduate and graduate level seminar is held at the center's rural base, an adobe lodge on an ecological ranch in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range of the Callejón de Huaylas, 7 hours northeast of Lima. Coursework provides in-depth orientation to theory and practice in field investigation that emphasizes methods in Participatory Action Research and Andean Ethnography centered on themes of Climate Change with respect to Ecology, Health, Education, Community Organization and related topics. Students have the opportunity to actively engage in ongoing investigations in local agricultural communities to develop effective field research techniques, and to acquire language skills. In addition, the program provides excursions to museums, archaeological sites, glacial lakes and hotsprings; optional recreational activities include hiking, mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, rock climbing and trekking. Total cost is $3,200 US dollars. This includes all in-country travel, food and accommodations at the rural center, and course materials.

7. Summer 2012 Archaeology Field School: Archaeology of Pirates

Join the University of South Florida (USF) for the adventure of a lifetime “on the high seas,”' investigating the pirate and buccaneer history of Roatan Island in the western Caribbean. Recent archaeological excavations on Roatan have unearthed an 18th century village of English settlers, who had to battle pirates and other tropical pests for their survival. The new USF Education Abroad program, which runs from late May to early July of 2012, will take students to the scene of the action as they explore the events surrounding the establishment and eventual destruction of the village. The program takes the form of an archaeological expedition and field school, where students will learn how to excavate the past, study artifacts, and contribute to the budding heritage tourism industry of “pirates of the Caribbean.” Undergraduates and graduate students welcome. No experience necessary. No language requirements. For details, visit our website ( or contact Dr. Christian Wells,

8. To My Fellow Anthropologists: I am writing to you in regards to the Northern Arizona University's Faculty-led Medical & Cultural Studies Expedition to the Indian Himalayas this upcoming summer of 2012. I will be participating on the trip as the Yoga and Meditation instructor. I am a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified instructor and have my BA in Anthropology from the University of Colorado. I participated in this program as a student in 2007, and it was truly life changing.

Our 23-day journey through ancient Himalayan settlements will provide students a rare opportunity to attend 7 days of active medical clinics led by US board certified physicians. It will also provide a chance to study, be participant observers, and investigate relationships between local religious beliefs and cultures and the impact of globalization. Daily schedule will include teachings led by Professor Paul Donnelly as well as clinicians, and integration of a daily yoga and meditation practice. Students may apply to the program. Expedition dates are June 24-July 15, 2012. Participation is open to undergraduate and graduate students 20 years and above.
