About HST 095 TR1

In this off-campus program, we will explore the history of the Mustang region of Nepal to understand how global forces are affecting geographically remote communities. Based in one of the most inaccessible sections of Nepal, on the border with Tibet, the program will introduce students to a community undergoing profound transitions,?culturally, socially, politically, linguistically, and religiously. Through a two-week initial orientation in Burlington, and then four weeks in Nepal, we will examine how this Tibetan Buddhist area has adapted to those changes, and what strategies have emerged for facing further changes in the future.
