Program Description:

Explore how concepts of community well-being and cultural identity are being creatively redefined in Bolivia, a country with 36 ethnic groups and the first indigenous president in South America.

BoliviaThis program studies cultural identity and the concept of community well-being in Bolivia. Students inquire into the social and psychological impact of globalization on Bolivian communities in Andean and Amazonian regions, asking why some communities seem to be depressed, downtrodden, and at risk, while others find resilience and reaffirmation in their families, social networks, creative outlets and traditions, and other resources.

Major topics of study include:
  • Bolivia’s complex history and current realities
  • Systems of knowledge and indigenous cosmovisión 
  • Themes of community well-being (“vivir bien”) and resilience
  • Globalization and Bolivia’s contemporary sociopolitical struggles
