This program will help you understand the broader global-political context of the conflict in Southeast Asia and the Cambodian genocide. The primary focus is on understanding the lasting impact and legacy of war and violence on national governments, economies, the environment, and especially individuals and communities. Through the vehicle of narratives – memoirs, fiction, and individual storytelling – this course aims to put a human face on the often abstract concept of war and violence.

The team will travel to Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Hue, Hoi An, My Lai Massacre site, DMZ, Ho Chi Minh City, tour the Mekong Delta, Phnom Penh, stay in the floating village in Cambodia, and the finish off in Siem Reap at Angkor Wat. This is a once in a lifetime chance to travel with Professor Shannon Peterson, Director of Global Programming at USU and Justin Powell, Executive Director of Youthlinc.
