Syllabus Description:

"How was your trip?"

Students returning from study abroad often find it difficult to answer this question. How can one explain in just a few short words an experience that was complicated, transformative, difficult, and euphoric - often all at once? This class will provide students with a space to revisit, rethink, and share stories about their travels. Participants will also make something tangible out of their experiences by editing and producing content for an online issue of Neither Here Nor There (Links to an external site.), a CHID-run student journal about study abroad.

An add code is required for registration. Students must have studied abroad previously, and CHID majors and minors may be given preference. This course is centered around the collective production of the journal, so students must be prepared to participate actively and complete assignments and editorial tasks according to strict deadlines.

If interested, please email Nick Barr Clingan (introps@uw.edu) with the following:

  1. Your major (and any minors)
  2. Which study abroad or exchange program you participated in (destination and sponsoring department)
  3. A brief explanation of your interest in the course
