Discover Namibia, a country with a multifaceted history not often explored in depth in U.S. curricula. By learning about its struggle against apartheid and colonization, along with its ties to South Africa, Germany and the rest of the world, this program examines how Namibia has risen to the challenge of building a nation since gaining independence in 1990.
Augsburg CGEE gets you out of the classroom and into the community with travel to multiple cities, visits to museums, local groups, and guest speakers. This is core to the CGEE philosophy of truly hearing the voices of multiple people, by facilitating encounters with people who have been marginalized. Examples include: Feminist and Human Rights activists, Members of the African National Congress and opposition parties, student and youth groups, and many more!
