The purpose of the “Down Under” seminar is for participants to discover and share the history, ethnicity, geography, economics, resources, politics, tourism, and international significance of these two countries.
This seminar will feature research presentations by participants on topics related to these two countries. We will focus on their relationship to the United States and the international community at large, as well as on the relationships between the European colonizers and the indigenous peoples of these two countries.
Participants may explore local libraries for relevant materials. The internet will be a major
source for all areas of research. No particular texts will be required.
