Professor Dorothy Pisarski will be taking a class of Drake University students to Poland in January 2015 as a part of Drake’s J-Term.
Ethnographic Exploration of Poland (JMC133) students will study and work in small groups. Each group will have a consumer product category to focus on. They will explore how it is advertised and sold in the USA first, and then follow the trail in Poland.
Pisarski taught the same class during the January term in 2013.
Here, Pisarski discusses the class.
Magazine major Sami Smith was on the trip in 2013. Here, she reflects on her experience:
Interested students should attend the J-Term Fair 4-6 p.m. March 11 in Parents Hall or read the class blog. Registration for this travel seminar occurs during normal Spring registration periods.
Note: These videos were shot and edited by Drake students using an iPod Touch as part of Professor Chris Snider’s Mobile Gadget Lab.
