This program will offer an inter-disciplinary investigation of one of the world’s most popular tourist sites. We will take an in depth look at the history and culture of the region while focusing on both the socio-logical and ecological lived experi-ence of the city. As a city literally taken over by non-natives during certain times of the year, Venice will offer a great insight into how the tourism industry effects the city’s environment. We will be enjoying the Biennale Arts Festival while there and will visit the sight of the first Jewish Ghettos.
