This January 8-12, 2018, Dr. Francisco Lozada, Jr. and Dr. Irasema Coronado, Professor of Political Science at University of Texas, El Paso, will offer a one-week travel seminar to the border region of El Paso, Texas. The course is entitled: Special Topics in Religion and Culture: U.S. Borderlands: Praxis and Context—RECU 70970/80970/90970. Topics to be examined include migration, globalization, the environment, and social justice. This travel seminar aims to make students more aware of various border issues and to challenge students to be more critically reflective about their participation in creating a transformative world. The travel seminar fulfills 3 credits toward the second half of the contextualization requirement for MDiv students or 3 credits toward the Cultural/Global Context requirement for MTS and MATM students. The course can be used as an elective. Please take a look at the class prospectus when posted.

Funding for transportation, lodging, and meals will be provided by a grant from the Abell-Hanger Foundation in Midland, Texas. An information session for those enrolled will be announced after enrollment and is mandatory. The travel seminar is capped at eight students and enrollment will be based on the first eight students who officially enroll in the course.
