South Africa in Boone
Faculty members of the South Africa’s University of the Free State (UFS) are in town. The Center for Appalachian Studies has strengthen the existing partnership, and this is the last leg of the federally funded “Mountain-to-Mountain” grant project. Faculty, staff and graduate students at both institutions have benefited greatly in teaching, research, mentorship, scholarship, human relationships and more. The Mountain-to-Mountain research projects in the High Country and South Africa were possible thanks to the $500,000 grant project, funded through the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in South Africa. Special recognition to grantee Dr. Jesse Lutabingwa, associate vice chancellor for international education and development at App State. He co-directed the project with Dr. Grey Magaiza, head of the UFS Qwaqwa Campus Department of Community Development. Grant project collaborators Dr. Julie Shepherd-Powell, our director Trevor McKenzie, and Dr. Katherine Ledford, who is also the founding chair of International Connections of the Appalachian Studies Association have embraced the project with a very special dedication. This video shows the great energy that Dr. Ledford has put into the visit of our counterparts at UFS. We’re very satisfied with the results of this partnership and we want to thank Dr. Katherine Ledford for her great initiative. #mountaintomountain #mountaineers #MountainsMatter #AppStateAppStudies #appalachianmountains #AppStateAppStudies

Morelia fue también conocida como la Ciudad de los Ates. Pero ¿qué son los ates?
Acompáñanos a conocer el último reducto de los ates artesanales en Morelia, la capital de Michoacán.
