Guatemala Health Initiative Info Session (ANTH 402)

What:

The Guatemala Health Initiative(GHI) partners with health and education institutions in Guatemala to provide mutually beneficial opportunities in global health and development. GHI runs a spring break trip for Penn students, a Penn course ANTH 402, and a summer field experience. The course is designed to teach about doing research in resource-limited environments like Guatemala or West Philadelphia. Students in the course travel to Guatemala over spring break to apply course concepts “on the ground” in Santiago Atitlan. Selected students (usually 6-8)  are invited to spend 10 weeks in Guatemala over the summer doing research with the community of Santiago Atitlan. The research centers around topics related to community concerns. Most recently those concerns include diabetes and nutrition related problems. We have also had students travel to Guatemala for the 10 week program without taking the course. Freshmen and sophomores are eligible to apply for a PURM (provost’s undergraduate research mentoring award) which could support you for much of the 10 week program. For the 10 week program, you need to be able to communicate in Spanish. Financial aid eligible students receive support as part of registration in the class ANTH 402 and ANTH 403. This information session will discuss the GHI program including spring break, the course, and summer field work.

Reading Kamasutra? Better watch it!

What:
Ancient Studies brings you 'Reading Kāmasūtra'. Actually, why not watch it instead. We are showing a 38 minute documentary on the ancient Indian text on lovemaking. Yes it is made by the 'West' in the 'East', but it is pretty good and very close to the content of the text. Come to learn about the ancient text of Kāmasūtra, served with samosas.

A seperate email with a pdf attachement has been sent to you all containing a four page excerpt from the earliest English translation of the text, on Things to be done by Man to gain her, and vice-versa. Feel free to read it and stay after the documentary for Q&A. This event is open to the entire house. It will be fun!!

Yoga in RTL

What:

"Yoga Hour @Harnwell is aimed at introducing discipline in life by waking up early with the sun, getting into routine of a set of yoga postures. This will teach you how to breath with postures and help you feel more comfortable in the yoga practice. We will have different sessions on postures and meditation over different days. Over first few weeks, I will take everyone through my sequence of postures and you will try to create your own set of postures that works best for you. On some of the days we will also do the activity outdoors in the green space near Harnwell. Note: Wear athletic clothes and bring your yoga mat."
