Ball State University is offering its next South Asia field study semester, CapAsia V, in Spring 2007.
CapAsia is a unique field semester with national and international reputation. It provides an extraordinary opportunity to experience the socially, culturally, and historically different South Asia, and to develop a critical understanding of your own cultures and environments. The program is open to upper-level undergraduates and Master's level students with an interest in social and cultural aspects of urban spaces and built environments.
The theme is "landscapes of disaster." The “Planning to Learn” ,project will connect the disasters caused by the south Asian tsunami and the hurricanes in the USA and the responses to these by environmental planning and design professionals, policy makers, and the people themselves. The “Building to Learn" project will be carried out in a self-built neighborhood of India, in collaboration with SPA, Delhi. Stopovers include Hong Kong and Bangkok.
