At a time when border crises are impacting countries across the globe, it’s no surprise that seniors in Ingrid Herskind’s Border Politics class are taking on the challenge of understanding these conflicts.
Early this school year, Prep announced four new global studies trips to Arizona, Cuba, France, and China.
Prep sophomore Leon Kuo ’21 gave an insightful and stimulating talk entitled “Halfway”, about growing up straddling two cultures—American and Taiwanese.
Dr. James Brooks, noted borderlands historian and anthropologist from the University of California, Santa Barbara, visited Prep’s campus recently for a talk with juniors about the history of the US-Mexico border.
Impact is a byproduct of empathy and understanding. This is the basic premise behind Prep’s new Global Studies initiative.
