How does hiking an historic trail create opportunities for learning?

Since the Middle Ages, the Camino de Santiago has brought travelers from all over the world to the city of Santiago de Compostela, Spain.  A 17-day study abroad program at KU creates a cultural journey through art, architecture, history, and diverse landscapes, and gives students the opportunity to examine the significance of the pilgrimage since the 9th century as well as its fundamental role in the cultural exchange between the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe. Through the acts of walking, journaling, and participating in cultural activities, students reflect on the culture and history of the Camino and meet pilgrims from all over the world.

This class is co-taught by Margot Versteeg, a professor of Spanish and director of KU’s Humanities Program, and Megan Sheldon, a lecturer in the department of Spanish and Portuguese.

Zoom access information coming shortly!
