Bali Travel Seminar
Time: 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Case Center Intercultural Center: Music, dance, theater, and visual arts are ubiquitous in Bali, where artistic production is far out of proportion to the size and population of the island. One of some 17,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago, Bali is a place of dualism—suka and duka (the good and the bad), black and white, up and down—all contributing to a greater cosmic balance. Though Indonesia is the largest Muslim-majority country in the world, most Balinese practice Agama Hindu Dharma, a syncretic blend of Hinduism, Buddhism, and animism that requires performing and visual arts for the successful completion of the thousands of ceremonies undertaken each year. The unique history and culture of Bali are best understood through the arts, which connect past to present, self to community, and religion to reality. Students and faculty will live in the Tangkas family compound in Bangah, a small village in central Bali. The daily class schedule will include lectures and discussion of readings on Balinese history, culture, arts, and environment. It will also include practical instruction in traditional music, dance, painting, and woodcarving, in conjunction with Sanggar Manik Galih, the music and dance studio housed in the compound. Students will experience Balinese arts and culture through participation in daily life, attendance at a wide range of performances, and lecture-demonstrations by a variety of artists and craftsmen. The studio has been outfitted with a gamelan angklung, gamelan gong kebyar, gamelan gender wayang, gamelan balaganjar, and gamelan joged bumbung for course use. Lectures and discussions will address issues of colonialism, tourism, the environment, globalization, and modernization as they relate to Balinese culture, Balinese arts, and the island itself. All coursework provides a framework for better understanding the island’s reliance on the arts and their close relationship with Balinese culture and religion. Elizabeth Macy is a Skidmore visiting assistant professor who teaches courses in ethnomusicology. She holds a B.A. in music from Colorado College, an M.A. in music from UCRiverside, and a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology from UCLA. Her primary research addresses the function of music tourism in postdisaster economies, with a particular focus on music tourism in the recovery and rebuilding of post-Katrina New Orleans and of Bali after the 2002 and 2005 terrorist bombings. She previously taught courses in Bali through Colorado College, conducted extensive research around the island, and is a founding member of the Sanggar Manik Galih music and dance studio in central Bali.

Italy Travel Seminar
Time: 5:15 PM to 6:30 PM
Palamountain Hall 202: Dante Alighieri is one of the most important and renowned authors of the Western world. His cultural influence transcends countries and media to permeate the work of countless artists and intellectuals throughout the centuries. The World of Dante (TX 200, 1 credit) is a journey back in time to explore the political, historical and cultural world where Dante lived and which influenced his masterpiece. After reading and analyzing the Comedy during the semester, students explore several sites in Central Italy that are pertinent to Dante’s work. Students start their journey in Florence, Dante’s birthplace, where they gain understanding of the political turmoil that affected the city during his life. Students then follow Dante’s steps to Pisa and Siena. He often traveled to these Tuscan towns as “Secretary of State” for the city of Florence. Several pivotal historical figures in the Comedy resided there. This journey back to the 14th century provides students with the tools to assess their understanding of the intricate political relationships between the three city-states and create connections with international relations today. Students next explore the Marches region. It is the birthplace of one of the most important dynasties of the 14th-15th centuries, the Malatestas. Their early vicissitudes are intertwined with Dante’s life. Finally students will dwell on the meaning of exile, as they follow Dante’s steps as an expatriate to Ravenna. Through lectures, museum visits and guided tours students will expand the ideas developed in classroom discussions, consolidate their understanding, and elaborate connections with modern topics. Barbara Garbin is Teaching Professor of Italian in the World Languages and Literatures Department. Prof. Garbin was born in Italy, where she studied at the University Ca’ Foscari in Venice. She earned her Ph.D. in Italian Literature at Yale University with a dissertation on fantastic literature in Fascist Italy. She has published on Italian women writers and cinematic representation of Italian cities. Prof. Garbin teaches Italian language courses with special attention to innovative pedagogies, blended learning and flipped classroom pedagogy. In her literature courses, she aims at bringing new interactive and out-of-classroom activities to enhance the appreciation of Italian literary masterpieces. Prof. Garbin is currently working on two research-projects: the first on the Italian influences in Robert Penn Warren’s early work, and the second on the contribution of the city of Venice to the Italian fashion industry.

Lond
Time: 5:15 PM to 6:30 PM
Ladd Hall 206: Event Description including Speaker/Performer As major international cities, these metropolitan capitals have something in common: they share a majestic legacy, for each contains portions of the Parthenon, one of humanity’s greatest artistic achievements. The story of the Parthenon combines the beauty and epitome of Western art and architecture with the drama of looting antiquities, all in the name of “empire.” Your mission will be to put the Parthenon back together. May 21–June 3, 2017 The Parthenon from Pericles to the Present (TX 200A) is a one-credit interdisciplinary travel seminar taught by Skidmore professors Michael Arnush and Leslie Mechem that will introduce students to the long and storied history of the Parthenon, its sculptures, and the age of Pericles that created them. For 200 years the Parthenon on the Athenian Acropolis has been separated from its sculptural decorations, most of which reside in the British Museum in London as the “Elgin Marbles.” This travel seminar will enable you to reunite the marbles in London with the Temple to Athena in Athens and, to study, first on campus and then abroad, the art, architecture, history, politics and culture of ancient Athens during the golden age of Pericles. Michael Arnush, Associate Professor and Chair of the Classics Department. Professor Arnush specializes in Greek and Roman history, especially the origins, development and collapse of Athenian democracy in the archaic and classical periods. His latest project is a book-length study of the 5th-century BCE defeat of the Persian empire by the Greeks, specifically the Athenian victory at the Battle of Salamis in 480. Leslie Mechem, Lecturer in the Classics Department and Director of the Gender Studies Program. Professor Mechem specializes in Greek and Roman art and archaeology, especially the propagandistic significance of 5th-century Athenian architecture and sculpture, and the roles of women in ancient Greece and Rome. Her most recent work focuses on the looting and marketing of antiquities, including the Parthenon marbles, today conveniently called the “Elgin Marbles.” Professors Arnush and Mechem are both alumni of the University of Pennsylvania and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. They look forward to sharing their passions for London and Athens with students interested in the ancient world.
