Greece 30 Years Later: Revisiting my Study Abroad Experience
Date(s) 11/09/2018 - 2:15 p.m (refreshments), 2:30 p.m. (talk)
Location Willard Conference Room, DePerno Hall
Presenter Deborah Wilson-Allam, Executive Director of International Education
Description Greece is well known for its ancient contributions to western culture that make it an ever popular tourist destination, but less well known are its current economic woes and its strategic role as the first European port of entry for refugees from the Middle East and Africa. Wilson-Allam will discuss her recent travel to Greece and contrast it with the Greece she experienced as a student in 1986 with pictures and references to how this study abroad experience shaped her life and career working with refugee students – and explore how seeing Greece again through her 18-year old daughter's eyes further broadened her perspective of study abroad as a significant undergraduate experience.
