Ball State University is offering its next South Asia field study semester, CapAsia V, in Spring 2008.
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 the participants' own cultures and environments. The program is open to upper-level undergraduates and graduate students with an interest in social and cultural aspects of urban spaces and built environments.
The theme is "Post-Tsunami Developments in South Asia." The "Planning to Learn" project will connect the disasters caused in Sri Lanka by the tsunami and in the USA by the hurricanes; the participants will study 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 Penang (Malaysia) and Bangkok (Thailand).
