“Anthropology of Rural Agricultural Communities (ARAC) Exchange Program”

The ARAC exchange program between the University of Alabama (UA) and Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP) will provide opportunities for students and faculty of both universities to travel abroad in order to explore critical issues facing rural agricultural communities. The goal of this program is to implement a new study abroad program that will increase awareness, knowledge, and critical engagement of a diverse population with issues faced by rural agricultural communities in the U.S. and Mexico.  UA students will examine samples of indigenous-developed agricultural strategies of rural communities, while UDLAP students will focus on Pre-Hispanic agriculture and farming environments around the Moundville Archaeological Site in Alabama.
