UP 521 - International Planning Seminar - W (starts Jan 30) 2-4:50pm

A unique aspect of the seminar is that it is taught simultaneously in Fortaleza, Brazil at Universidad Federal de Ceara (UFC) by Professor Clarissa Freitas and at UIUC by Professor Faranak Miraftab. Students and faculty at the two institutions will meet online and discuss shared reading and lecture material once a month.

A select group of students have the option to sign up for a follow up two weeks field trip to Fortaleza in May, to collaborate on-site with Dr. Freitas and her students at UFC. Students participating in the workshop will sign up for UP428, taught by Professor Ken Salo at UIUC, and earn additional 3 credit hours upon successful completion of the workshop class.

Interested graduate students can contact Faranak Miraftab at faranak@illinois.edu and show up at first discussion session of the seminar on Wed Jan 30th (2:00 to 4:50pm).
