Gain a unique perspective on intercultural relationships with SIT in Ecuador. Take a deep look at the relationship between power and discourse as the country’s multilingual and multiethnic populations strive for social change and sustainability.
On this program, you will study power and politics in Ecuador and consider how these discussions are shaped through different discourses. Because power and ideology are reproduced and challenged through language, you will also explore how different stakeholders in Ecuador have used both Spanish and indigenous languages to instill, reinforce, subvert, and reinvent power relationships, both historically and today. The program thus combines a political and economic focus with an emphasis on discourse and language. You will leave with a highly sophisticated understanding of how this small, bio-diverse, and multi-ethnic country is thinking about development.
