The course Grassroots Activism in South India takes UMD students to Bangalore, India for three weeks (5/16/20166/4/2016) to study grassroots activism in this growing city. Dr. Pine and Dr. de Souza. In Bangalore, students stay at the Indian Social Institute, a liberation theology influenced Jesuit Institute whose motto is “Accompanying the Marginalized.” As part of the program they interact with activists from across Bangalore, visit the historic Hindu temple sites of Belur and Halebid, fly to the city of Agra to visit the Taj Mahal, take the train to Kolar Gold Fields (a mining community outside of Bangalore) and have a lot of opportunities to explore the shopping malls, streets, and restaurants of Bangalore.
