January 25th, 2018 § 0

Ireland and Scotland Study Abroad Poster

The English department is thrilled to offer English 3335: Celtic Lit. and Culture, led by Professor Christine Chaney.

This Study Abroad program runs from August 24 through September 15, 2018,  and gives students the chance to explore the sacred, beautiful Celtic landscapes of Ireland and Scotland. We will visit everything from ancient holy sites to spectacular coastal beaches to thriving urban neighborhoods, studying Celtic literature, history, culture, and faith in the context of peacemaking.

We will anchor ourselves in the great capital cities of Edinburgh and Dublin and explore from there, discovering both ancient high crosses and modern challenges. There will be opportunities for learning with Christian reconciliation organizations working through the dark legacy of sectarianism, as well as opportunities to discover the joy of stories, music, and art, too — everything from ancient Celtic myths to Harry Potter. There will be time for faith and reflection as well as excursions to epic sites of history and culture.

Before departure, students will also be expected to participate in several spring quarter orientation sessions and some summer reading by way of preparation.

Applications due to the Study Abroad office before March 1, 2018.

For more information, contact the Study Abroad office.

Destinations and attractions:

Dublin, Edinburgh, Belfast, The Highlands, Stirling Castle, Silver Strand Beach, Newgrange Monument, Celtic High Crosses, Wicklow Mountains, “Harry Potter Train” to Mallaig, Scotland, Ferry across the Irish Sea — and more!

We’re the Field School for Environmental Organizing
Are you passionate about the environment? Are you ready to learn how to run campaigns to help solve the climate crisis or save our last wild places? We offer a year-long, paid training program that will prepare you for a career in environmental organizing. Here’s how it works:Part One: Classroom Training
You’ll participate in eight weeks of intensive classroom training conducted by representatives from a wide range of organizations and campaigns.

Our staff and trainers present overviews on the biggest issues facing our environment as well as teaching our organizers a variety of valuable skills such as volunteer recruitment, campaign planning, public speaking and much more.
Part Two: Field Training on Real Campaigns
As a Green Corps organizer, you’ll receive the bulk of your training through hands-on experience working on behalf of organizations such as the Sierra Club, the WildernessSociety and Food & Water Watch. Job responsibilities include recruiting, training and supervising volunteers; organizing visibility events; securing media coverage; and building strong coalitions.

You’ll lead three to five different campaigns in communities across the country. By working with several different campaign partners, you’ll gain experience tackling a diversity of issues and working with a variety of individuals.

For example, a team of organizers recently helped run a campaign that persuaded Kellogg’s, the cereal company, to pressure its supplier of palm oil to stop destroying tropical forests. Other Green Corps organizers have played critical roles in the retirement of over a dozen coal-fired power plants on the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign.

Part Three: Launch Your Career
After completing the training program, Green Corps connects graduates to groups looking to hire full-time staff. Our alumni now work with organizations such as Environment America, Greenpeace, Corporate Accountability International, Rainforest Action Network, National Wildlife Federation, and NRDC, among others.

Location And Compensation
The target annual compensation for this position is $26,000. Green Corps offers a competitive bene ts package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Green Corps organizers go where the fight is and wherever they can make the biggest impact. They could work on campaigns almost anywhere in the country and while location preferences are considered for placements, we require all organizers to be geographically flexible.
