Global Citizenship

Faculty from Luther, Coe, Cornell, and Ripon Colleges will work together to explore the feasibility of a short-term study abroad course on the island nation of Malta. The course, Global Citizenship, will look at issues of poverty, migration, culture, and nationhood, among others and would be offered through Luther College as soon as June 2011. Deborah Norland and John Moeller are the project leaders. They propose Malta as an "ideal country" for such a short-term experiential course. Although Malta is part of the European Community, it continues to be a developing nation with a rich history of cultures intermingling, most recently receiving northern African refugees who see Malta as their entry into the European Community.
