This summer ten College of Wooster faculty will be traveling to Jordan and the Jerusalem area for an extended study seminar on conflict and cooperation between Jordanians, Israelis and Palestinians. We are supported by the Hales Fund at Wooster administered by President Grant Cornwell. Our field experiences have been arranged by the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) through their Faculty Development program. We have been studying Middle Eastern culture, politics and history throughout the year in preparation for this experience. This blog will be a record of our travel and observations.
