Join us for a virtual exploration as JCCC faculty tell us about the countries of future Study Abroad trips.

Bill McFarlane, Professor of Anthropology, has conducted archaeological research on pre-Columbian societies of Mesoamerica. Today he will take us on a virtual exploration of Belize, a land of well-preserved Maya ruins, cultural diversity and beautiful contemporary rainforests and beaches. 

In another take on the ancient and the thoroughly modern, Dawn Gale, Professor of Philosophy, and Sheilah Philip, Professor Emeritus of Theatre, will discuss the fascinating nation of Japan. The old and the new are interwoven in contemporary Japanese traditions and thought, and Gale and Philip will show us what we can learn from this ancient civilization that has become an economic powerhouse.

This event is part of Explore the World Global Speaker Series. All are free and open to the public. RSVP to as many as you like. You will receive a Zoom link prior to each presentation.
