Students Study Urbicide In Sarajevo
As part of a summer course studying the historical character of Sarajevo, its multi-cultural heritage and its varied history during the Ottoman Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire and Communist Yugoslavia, seven students joined Professor of Sociology Keith Doubt and Keil Professor of Psychology Josephine Wilson on a trip to Sarajevo, May 20-28, to learn more about how people in the city survived a vicious, sadistic siege from 1992-95.
As part the visit, the students followed two walking guidebooks, one written for the Winter Olympics in 1984 and another after the war in 2005. They also engaged with students in Sarajevo and, upon their return, constructed a photojournal walking tour of the city with iWeb, using digital photos with narratives.
