WHAT: Free Speaker Series "What is Ethical Travel? Being a Good Guest in Other People's Homes" with Madeleine Colvin, Where there be Dragons
WHEN: Thursday, February 22nd from 2-3pm
WHERE: H-111 (Humanities Buidling, Main/East Campus, ground floor)

International Travel & tourism is a trillion-dollar industry encompassing everything from all-inclusive cruises to youth volunteer trips. In this workshop inspired by the travel writing of Bani Amor, students will dig into travel culture and the inequalities that plague it. We will ask big, messy questions such as: How can we be good guests in other people’s homes? How do we grapple with power and privilege abroad? What does it mean to decolonize travel? Madeleine Colvin shares her own reflections from researching tourist villages in southwestern China and leading group of students abroad in Asia. Students will leave the workshop with a renewed perspective on travel, ideas to keep in mind for future trips, and, likely, more questions than answers.

Speaker: Madeline Colvin, Fulbright research grant recipient, tea enthusiast, and Dragons instructor in China, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. M.Ed Curriculum & Instruction, University of Washington; B.A. International Relations, Pomona College.
