We are pleased to announce the 4th summer of hosting this intensive Quichua language training program. The Field School includes immersion-based language classes in Quichua at 4 levels (from beginner to advanced) as well as practical training in contemporary field work methods for Anthropology and Religious Studies. Portions of this program are particularly designed for students preparing for a lifetime of serious research on indigenous culture. We are continuing to offer a new course "Teaching Indigenous Culture" which appeals to K-12 teachers who wish to develop course materials on the Amazonian culture and/or environment.
This program is approved by the U.S. Department of Education for Graduate Summer FLAS Fellowships. To qualify, FLAS Fellows must enroll in both sessions. Four $1,000 Teacher Fellowships are also available for K-12 and community college teachers. Teacher Fellowship applications are available on the program website.
All students will gain a unique perspective by living and working with native communities in the Andes Mountains and Amazonian Forests. The program is led by Professor Tod Swanson, a Quichua religious history specialist and fluent Quichua speaker. Summer 2002 dates are 1st session, June 8 - 30, 2002, and 2nd Session, July 5 - 27, 2002. Seven credits are awarded per session by ASU Summer Sessions.
