Program Description

LDSP 320: Leadership Through the Ages - European Dissidents, Sages, and Resistors

This study abroad course is focused on dissidents, sages, and resistors who wrought change within various European nations, including The Czech Republic and Germany.. Through academic study, dialogue, personal observation, cultural experiences, and contextual analysis students will learn the dynamic role context plays in shaping leadership processes, stories of resistance, and effective social change. Students will complexify their understanding of good and bad leadership through studying specific leaders and their collaborators and attempt to analyze what they said and did in light of the places, people, history, and cultural environment that shaped them and their relationships. Some leaders will be inspiring, some will serve as a warning, and almost all will be a mix between the two. We will draw on classic leadership texts, biographies, writings, and art to draw implications for our own lives, our communities and aspirations.
