FIELD TRIPS AND SITE VISITS
Students enrolled in this unit will be participating in ascribed activities but there should be no mistake that you will also be involved in real field work and research.
The unit aims at actuating your sensibilities and stimulating your responses and ability to record unique cultural experiences for use in the study program and later as a citizen of the world.
Site visits include day to day interactions with local community within the village of Padang Galak as well as the village temple, the Pan Am flight 108 crash memorial site, the Taman Festival Bali ruins, the pantai (beach) and the markets at Sanur.
You will be taken to the site of the Bali Bombing memorial in Kuta. You will be asked, 'How is this different from the site of the Pan Am memorial?"
You will visit museums to gather an understanding of the history of Bali from stone age until present, the sturggle for independance after WW II, the impact of tourism, the impact of the Bali Bombings.
Visits to other sacred sites and musemus will give you an insight into the spirtual side of Bali, Klungkung and Kamasan visits will open your eyes to the rich artistic heritage of Bali and the unique complexity some of its visual languages.
